There is a lifetime of adventures and experiences to be had during summer in Banff and Lake Louise. You can jam pack your day with action and adrenaline or choose to embrace the tranquility of Banff National Park’s quieter spots. Lake Louise is known for its turquoise, glacier-fed lake ringed by high peaks and overlooked by the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
Calgary is a cosmopolitan city and the gateway to The Rockies. Cowboy culture is kicking in Calgary, even if you’d rather get your coffee from a hipster bistro than in a tin mug! The lively town of Banff combines astounding natural beauty with first-class hotels and unique culture. From up here in Canada’s highest town (1,383m), the Alberta Rockies look astonishingly good.
Edmonton is a young city with hip start-ups, cool cafes and locals that love any excuse to go out on the town. From June through August, the sun can rise as early as 5:00am, and sets as late as 10:00pm, so that’s 17 hours of vitamin D and plenty of time to pack in warm-weather activities. Jasper is known for being one of the most picturesque resorts and this easy-going alpine town has locals that treat you like long-lost pals, plus there's always something amazing and outdoorsy to do. The mountain town's got a lot to love: historic charm, super beautiful natural surroundings, and all the amenities you could ask for. There’s a reason everybody’s heard of Banff.
