Banff for Families

You and your kids were walking through a meadow of tall grass and colourful wildflowers. Well, you were walking, but the kids were running and leaping about, their energy and excitement palpable. They yelled at you to keep up as they bounded ahead towards the river. Their enthusiasm and sense of wonder reminded you of your visits when you were a child. It felt really special to share your love of the mountains and nature with them.  

Banff & Lake Louise is the perfect location for family vacations. A huge range of safe and accessible things to do year-round, a variety of accommodations, a full calendar of events, and family-friendly restaurants and amenities will make your trip easy and fun. Banff & Lake Louise is sure to capture you and your children’s imagination.
