The Big Picture

Take in the Big Picture at Banff National Park

On a clear day at Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, the sky meets the earth, casting a reflection of the towering Merlin Ridge of the Slate Range onto the clear waters of Lake Louise. In winter, the 2,564 square miles of Canada’s first national park transforms into an alpine landscape with breathtaking glaciers, dense coniferous forests and ice fields. This is a place to truly experience nature, from skiing the slopes of Mount Norquay to snowshoeing in Marble Canyon to spotting elk and bighorn sheep on a hike through the Fenland Trail.

Vacation tip: Bring a swimsuit even when snow is on the ground. The Banff Upper Hot Springs are open year-round, with water temperatures between 98 and 104 degrees.

How to Get There

Explore Banff and nearby national parks Jasper and Yoho using your ClubPoints and/or Bonus Points toward a Tauck-guided tour.
