Banff National Park is one the most popular tourist attractions in Canada. The place turns into crystal during winter but it still remains beautiful even during summer. You can camp around the area or visit some of the most iconic spots around the area. So if you are here only for a short time here are a couple of tips that you might want to consider.
Where to go
There are many iconic spots around Banff that you can go to such as the Tunnel Mountain. It is a short drive from Bow River Falls. When you reach the area, you can only admire the vast nature and surrounding grounds of the Banff Springs Hotel. On a clear day you get the best view of the Sulphur Mountain from the top. You can either take the Gondola to reach the peak or trek up the mountain or then enjoy a hot spring at the end of the trail.
Where to Eat
You can try eating at The Balkan. It is one of the best restaurants in the area that serve Greek food. However, if you want to try some local food and experience a little of the culture of the locals in the mountain, you can visit the Coyote’s Southwestern Grill. It is a small eatery located off the main street of Banff but it serves healthy and great-tasting food.
Your budget depends on your preference in terms of food, accommodation, and number of days you need to stay at Banff. Generally, it will cost you around $1000 for a three-day vacation in this country. This budget is enough to give you a comfortable accommodation, food and snacks for two days, and entertainment activities.
There is no VISA requirement if you are travelling from the USA to Canada. You only need to bring your passport and present it upon arrival. This makes travelling to this country hassle free. Passport is easier to obtain than a VISA and since you only need the former, it is not too hard to prepare.
Where to Stay
There are so many good places to stay when you are in Banff. The Banff Rocky Mountain National Park is a favorite among travellers since it has the easiest access to the top-rated ski areas in Banff. You can also stay at Banff Springs Hotel. It is like an old-world castle but technically it offers far more modern accommodation than how it looks. The hotels can be full during peak season so it is important that you book in advance.
