No matter when you visit, there is absolutely no shortage of things to do in Banff. This tiny town sits in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and is spectacularly beautiful virtually all year round. Despite its reputation as a launchpad for ski slopes and hiking trails, there’s a lot more to do in Banff than outdoor adventures to suite people of all ages and interests.
Like many, I assumed Banff would be a beautiful, tranquil town nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Locals and tourists would hike or ski most days, and the silence at night would be a nice change from city life. While it’s definitely beautiful, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and everyone does like to hike or ski on weekends, it’s anything but quiet or tranquil.
