Venue & Location




Welcome to Banff

Banff has been welcoming international visitors for more than a century. In 1883, the discovery of natural hot springs bubbling from the base of Sulphur Mountain led to the establishment of Canada's first national park. The United Nations further designated this area a "World Heritage Site" in 1985. Today, Banff National Park offers 6,641 square kilometers (2,564 square miles) of spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountain landscape. For visitors, bathing in the hot springs is but one of many activities offered in Canada's foremost National Park. When you visit the Banff/Lake Louise area, you will see why more than 4.5 million visitors come each year to experience the glory of the Canadian Rockies. Bring your camera, and enjoy!
