Located inside the borders of the UNESCO World Heritage site, Banff National Park, the Town of Banff is one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations. Nestled within the Canadian Rocky Mountains with stunning vistas of glacier-fed lakes and snow-capped mountain ranges, Banff offers no shortage of unique, small-town charm.
The town of Banff has a population of approximately 8,000 and holds high standards for architecture, landscaping, environmental and urban design for residential development, renovations and redevelopment. The economy is largely tourist-driven, with more than half of workers employed in the food and beverage, accommodation or retail trade industries.
With three ski and snowboard resorts in Banff National Park -- Ski Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise Mountain Resort -- the Town of Banff has established itself as a world-class winter sport destination. When not on the mountain, many outdoor enthusiasts enjoy ice skating on frozen lakes, horse drawn sleigh rides, and relaxing in Banff’s natural hot springs.
During warmer months, Banff is a popular mountain biking destination with over 190 kilometres of mountain biking trails. Banff also boasts an extensive network of hiking trails ranging from beginner to advanced. Summertime Banff activities also include golfing, relaxing in Banff’s natural hot springs, and running in the city’s annual marathon.
