Banff is the true spirit of the Rockies
Banff is the oldest and probably the best known of Canada's National Parks, and it's where you can find the two postcard-perfect images of the Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise and the Lake Moraine. Banff is also the most-visited National Park in Canada and some of the more popular hiking trails can seem a bit crowded, especially in the peak summer months. But remember, Banff is much more than its two most famous lakes...it's a massive park where you can really get away from it all. Just leave the car and walk out into the forest and you'll find natural areas that are virtually untouched.
