Banff National Park

Among the world's oldest national parks, Banff National Park serves as a World Heritage-listed mecca for cyclists, hikers, skiers, bird-watchers, mountain climbers, and anyone else with a passion for exploring vast untouched wildernesses. Arguably the biggest attraction in Banff National Park is the glacial Lake Louise, which features one of the world's most-photographed mountain ranges for a backdrop. Two relatively small towns house residents and provide amenities for thousands of annual visitors--the rest of the area, about 93 percent of it, remains unspoiled wilderness. You can spend your entire Banff National Park holiday wandering though this natural playground on foot, but if you're strapped for time, drive the scenic roads and look out for deer, elk, and caribou.
