Banff – 3 night stay

There’s a reason everybody’s heard of Banff. The mountain town’s got a lot to love: historic charm, super beautiful natural surroundings, and all the amenities you could ask for. Hit the shops and restaurants on Banff Avenue and try gravy-smothered poutine while wearing your new favourite moose T-shirt. Then, after a day of ice-walking, skiing or sightseeing in the Rockies, visit a brewpub or distillery for a drink and a bison burger. You’ve earned it. ● Must-See: That castle across the river? That’s the historic Fairmont Banff Springs. Explore the hotel’s history and hauntings before treating yourself at the amazing thermal spa. ● Rise Up: Ride the Banff Gondola for an unbeatable mountaintop view.
