Getting to Banff

Banff is located in Banff National Park, Alberta, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The town lies approximately 135km west of Calgary and 60km east of Lake Louise, accessible in both directions via the Trans Canada Highway, also known as Highway 1. Many visitors to Banff also visit Jasper Alberta, which lies around 300km to the north in Jasper National Park. Calgary International Airport is the main gateway into Banff and several transport options are available to bring you here from the airport, including car rental/hire, airport shuttles, buses and limousines. Banff is also a stopping point for the Rocky Mountaineer, the famous western Canadian rail tour. The oustanding natural beauty of the Rockies makes Banff a must-see for any traveller.

A drive on the Icefields Parkway offers some of the most spectacular mountain and glacier scenery anywhere in the world, and a ride on the Ice Explorer on the Columbia Icefield is a highlight not to be missed.
