Welcome to Winter Wonderland!
Banff is known all around the world as a bustling winter town, and with the gorgeous viewpoints, Christmas markets, and (of course), famous ski hills in the region, it’s not hard to see why! Each year, Banff National Park transforms into a sparkling winter paradise and welcomes visitors to its snowy peaks. If you’ve been looking for a holiday getaway that’s a little closer to home, but that still allows you to explore and enjoy plenty of adventure, Banff is a wonderful destination located just 4.5 hrs away from Edmonton, and about 90 minutes away from Calgary. There’s never been a better time to treat yourself to a last-minute escape. Below are just some of the special features you can take part in for Christmas 2021!
