There are so many attractions in Banff you won't be able to visit them all in one day. From the Banff Gondola to the hot springs to lake cruises, there’s so much to do in our little town. You can also visit some of the country’s national historic sites while you’re here.

We’re proud of our history and heritage in the Town of Banff. Take a trip off the beaten path and learn a little bit about the founders of this community, and walk by some of the historic homes and places that still exist in town.
You can walk to almost everything in Banff. The town is just 3.94 sq. kilometres, so most things are within a 10 minute walk. For everything further away, there's public transit. Find out more about Getting Around in Banff.
