Banff for Social Distancing

Explore Banff and Lake Louise and savour the peace that comes from an authentic connection with nature. 

In this time of social distancing, Banff and Lake Louise have measures in place to ensure visitor and community safety. Things may look a little different, but these new elements work in harmony with the many opportunities to experience moments of awe in the Canadian Rockies. 

Banff and Lake Louise offer an escape into nature; the perfect destination to explore and enjoy the moment. 

Wander a seemingly endless choice of trails and find a moment of stillness amidst the trees and alpine meadows. Relish the liberating expanse of Banff National Park as you glide through snow-covered forests by cross-country ski or spend time exploring breathtaking mountain roads. Marvel at the snow-covered peaks that surround you, and stop for a selfie against one of countless, awe-inspiring backdrops.
