Things to Do in Banff
Shopping, eating and soaking up the healing salts at the hot springs in Banff are great year-round activities, but the seasonal activities are the area's real draws. There's plenty here for adventurous souls as well as quiet-hideaway seekers.
Banff National Park has a subarctic climate, with chilly snow-filled winters and mild summers. December to March is the peak-time for Banff skiing, with the first snow falling sometime in late October/early November. Summer activities are in full-swing beginning after the snow-melt sometime in April.
“This was our first visit to Banff and the Charlton’s Banff Hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was clean and comfortable and the location of the hotel was excellent. The front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again the next time we visit the area. ”-Cathy B,
“Don't hesitate to stay here, we had a loft room and it was great. Very comfortable bed, good shower pressure, well kept and clean room. We were able to also book ourselves into the pool for the 30 min time-slot, and we also enjoyed that. Very friendly front desk staff. Overall we were very pleased and definitely recommend this hotel! ”-Sharon S,
“Exactly what the title states. We were only there for one night, but we really enjoyed the loft unit we had. We also took advantage of the complimentary breakfast as we were heading out of town early. There was a lot of snow overnight and we woke up early to see probably 6 people working to clear the lot. Our room had a TV both up and down with a fireplace by the main entrance door.”-Suzuki DR,
