Win a Trip to Map a Hiking Trail in Banff National Park

This summer, Banff & Lake Louise Tourism has partnered with Google to map scenic hiking trails in Banff National Park. We will host one lucky Albertan (and a guest) for a two-night stay, including breakfast and dinner at the beautiful Num-Ti-Ja Lodge. The winner will hike the trail to Bow Glacier Falls (the birthplace of the Bow River) with the Google Trekker, a 15-camera backpack that will record every step of your trek. This could be your chance to share your passion for hiking by capturing the 9.6km trail to showcase on Google maps. 

Here is an example of the view at Lake Louise with Google Trekker mapping.

How to Enter

Simply share a photo of your favourite hike anywhere in Banff National Park with the hashtag #trekbanff on Instagram or Twitter, or upload the photo directly through this link. Entries will be accepted from 12:00 p.m. MST on August 23rd to 12:00 p.m. MST September 7th. Full contest rules and regulations here

The winner will be chosen at random from eligible entries, and will receive:

  • Two nights stay at Num Ti Ja Lodge, along the Icefields Parkway (max two people). 
  • Two breakfasts and one dinner (for two people) at Num Ti Ja Lodge.
  • Escorted hike to Bow Glacier Falls, wearing the 15-camera Trekker backpack (note: The Google Trekker is approximately 50lbs/23kg).  
  • $100 gas card.

Good luck, and happy trekking!
