Banff National Park is a comfortable ninety minute drive west of Calgary in
the province of Alberta, via the four-lane, year round Trans Canada Highway.
The area is easily accessible with numerous international and charter airlines
offering flights from around the world. Banff and Lake Louise are also
serviced by rail, charter coach and scheduled bus services. Major car rental
agencies are conveniently located in Banff, Lake Louise and Calgary. Banff and
Lake Louise are joined by a spectacular forty minute drive through the Bow
Banff. In 1883, the transcontinental railway reached the formidable Rocky
Mountains and three railway workers chanced upon simmering hot springs. The
area was protected by the government and two years later became Canada's first
national park, Rocky Mountain Park. At 1384 m (4540 ft) above sea level, Banff
is "Canada's Highest Town".
