Comparing mountains is highly subjective and imprecise, however, few would deny that the more than 640 km (397 miles) that make up the Canadian Rockies , which stretch across Alberta to British Columbia , are mountains that form one of the most extravagantly beautiful places in the world.
This impressive mountain range has been formed for centuries by combining the different forces of nature. In its valleys and forests it will not be difficult for you to find all kinds of small and large mammals, wild flowers, rivers and lakes with crystal clear water.
Banff National Park is a seasonal destination. The greatest views are received in summer when you can take long walks along its endless trails, although for ski lovers, there is also a must in winter. Millions of people visit the park every year especially during the months of July and August, which are the hottest and driest months in the park .
It can be visited at the end of spring (May-June) or at the beginning of autumn (September), when prices are also lower, there are fewer people and the temperatures make the stay much more comfortable. The downside of a visit out of season is the fact that you can not see too many wild flowers, which make the landscape much nicer.
If you’re spending the entire day in the area, start the day early and head to the Banff Information Center , where you can collect information and maps on the main sites to visit. One of your stops can be Lake Louise and then continue walking towards Johnston Canyon where you can enjoy its spectacular waterfall. Make sure to dine in a good place, as you will have earned it after a tiring day.
