Planning a trip around Canada and want to know how to prepare the best 7 day Banff itinerary? I’ve travelled all around Canada, including Banff National Park, and I’ll tell you everything about it.

Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Banff has a unique blend of incredible landscapes and wildlife, cultural sites, and countless outdoor activities.

This guide is designed to help you make the most of your time in one of Canada’s most spectacular natural settings. Whether you’re an outdoor lover like myself, a nature lover, or just want to take a trip from Calgary, you’re definitely in for a treat.

Where is Banff?

Banff is located in the province of Alberta in western Canada. It’s located within Banff National Park, which is part of the larger Canadian Rockies mountain range.

The town is about 128 kilometres (80 miles) west of Calgary and is accessible via the Trans-Canada Highway.

How to Get to Banff?

Banff is accessible by air through Calgary International Airport, which is about a 90-minute drive away. From Calgary, you can rent a car, take a shuttle bus, or arrange private transportation to reach Banff.

I personally recommend renting a car either in Calgary or Banff so you have more freedom to explore the national park. I drove from Calgary to Banff on my Canada road trip, and I recommend you do the same if you have the time!

Plus, driving offers scenic views along the Trans-Canada Highway, providing a beautiful introduction to the Rocky Mountains as you approach the town.

How to Get Around Banff National Park?

Getting around Banff National Park is convenient with various options available. You can drive, which offers flexibility to stop at multiple scenic points. Public transportation is also available, including the Roam bus service, which connects major sites and attractions.

Alternatively, if you don’t plan to rent a car but still want to explore Banff conveniently, I highly recommend checking out the tour below.

Where to Start Your 7-Day Banff Itinerary?

Start your 7-day Banff itinerary in the town of Banff itself. It serves as a central hub, offering easy access to accommodations, dining, and shopping, as well as proximity to major attractions like Banff Gondola and Lake Louise.

Starting here allows you to gradually explore further into the park.

Best Time to Visit Banff National Park

The best time to visit Banff National Park depends on your activities of interest. Summer (June to August) is ideal for hiking and lake tours, with long daylight hours and warm weather.

Winter (December to March) is perfect for skiing and snowboarding. Shoulder seasons like late spring and early autumn offer fewer crowds and beautiful natural scenery, making them great times to visit as well.

Banff or Jasper?

Choosing between Banff and Jasper depends on your preferences. Banff is more accessible and tends to be busier, offering a wide array of shops, restaurants, and accommodations. It’s renowned for iconic sites like Lake Louise and the Banff Gondola.

Jasper, on the other hand, is quieter and more remote, ideal for those seeking a more relaxed experience with nature. It’s home to the scenic Icefields Parkway and the expansive Jasper National Park, which is a haven for wildlife and offers more rugged landscapes.

I compared both Jasper and Banff National Parks, and you’ll want to read that guide too!

Where to Stay in Banff?

I recommend staying in Banff Town and coming back every day after exploring around. During these 7 days in Banff, you’ll explore several parts of the national park, so coming back into town makes the itinerary more convenient in that regard.

Here are the best hotels I recommend staying in Banff.

Luxury: Moose Hotel and Suites

Moose Hotel and Suites provides a luxurious retreat just a minute’s walk from downtown Banff. It features a rooftop lounge with two hot pools and panoramic mountain views, a full-service spa, and beautifully appointed rooms with fireplaces and private balconies.

This upscale hotel combines rustic elegance with modern amenities, making it an ideal choice for travellers seeking comfort and style in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

Mid-Range: Banff Inn

Banff Inn offers comfortable and contemporary accommodations on Banff Avenue, just a short walk from the town centre. The hotel features updated rooms with cosy bedding and modern amenities, including a sauna and a hot tub for relaxation.

An on-site bar and restaurant provide convenient dining options. Banff Inn represents excellent value for a blend of convenience and comfort in a central location.

Budget: Samesun Banff Hostel

Samesun Banff Hostel is a budget-friendly option that doesn’t sacrifice quality in any way. Located on Banff Avenue, this hostel offers a sociable environment with both dormitory-style and private rooms available.

Amenities include a communal kitchen, a lively common area, and daily activities aimed at solo and young travellers. Samesun Banff is perfect for those looking to meet new people while exploring Banff without breaking the bank.

Ultimate 7 Day Banff Itinerary

Now that you know the essentials about Banff and how to get there and where to stay, it’s time for the main section of this guide.

Starting in the lively streets of Banff Town, this guide takes you through the serene waters of Lake Louise and the dramatic landscapes of the Icefields Parkway. Each day is packed with activities that range from relaxing in natural hot springs to taking exciting hikes and exploring local culture.

When preparing this 7 day Banff itinerary, I made sure to include all the best spots in the national park without the plan feeling rushed, and I’ll include personal recommendations for hotels and restaurants, as well as guided tours.

If you have limited time, check out this 3 days in Banff itinerary.

Day 1: Arrival and Exploring Banff Town

Begin your exploration of Banff by settling into your accommodation and getting acquainted with Banff Town. This charming mountain town offers a mix of scenic beauty, shopping options, and nightlife making it an excellent place to start your journey.

Spend your day strolling through Banff Avenue, shopping in local boutiques, and dining in cosy cafés. Here’s a sample itinerary for your first day in town.

Morning: Arrival and Check-in

Start your Banff adventure by checking into your accommodation. Take some time to settle in, unpack, and prepare for a week full of incredible views and fun activities.

Familiarise yourself with the area, check out local amenities, and plan for an exciting day ahead.

Afternoon: Visit the Banff Park Museum

After settling in, visit to the Banff Park Museum, a national historic site. This museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the natural history of the Rockies.

You’ll be able to see exhibits featuring an extensive collection of taxidermied wildlife, which provide insights into the biodiversity of the region.

The museum’s architecture itself is a throwback to traditional log cabin designs, adding to the overall rustic experience of your visit.

Banff Park Museum is open Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM to 5 PM, so keep that in mind.

Late Afternoon: Stroll through Banff Avenue

Cap off your first day with a nice stroll down Banff Avenue, the heart of the town. This bustling main street is lined with quaint shops, charming cafes, and a variety of restaurants.

Browse through local boutiques for unique souvenirs, enjoy a cup of coffee at a cosy café, try the famous Canadian Poutine, and soak in the atmosphere of this mountain town.

The stunning backdrop of the Rockies enhances the charming urban landscape, making it a perfect start to your Banff journey.

Of course, you can’t skip that iconic photo of Cascade Mountain over the end of Banff Avenue, one of the most popular shots you’ll take on your 7 days in Banff!

Evening: Banff Upper Hot Springs

For a relaxing end to your day, consider a visit to the Banff Upper Hot Springs, located only about 15 minutes from Banff Avenue.

Relax in the soothing, mineral-rich waters of these naturally heated springs while enjoying panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. While you’re probably not too tired from the road to Banff, it’s good to be ready for the upcoming week!

The entry costs $17.50 per person and it’s worth every penny!

Day 2: Banff National Park Highlights

Dedicate your second day to exploring the natural wonders of Banff National Park. Start with a breath-taking visit to Lake Louise, known for its turquoise waters and stunning mountain backdrop.

Then, head to Moraine Lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, another iconic spot famed for its vibrant, glacier-fed waters.

Finish your day by either canoeing on Lake Louise or simply relaxing by its shores, before heading back to Banff Town.

Lake Louise and the Icefields Parkway Full-Day Tour

Morning: Lake Louise

Start your day early with a drive to Lake Louise, which is about a 40-minute journey from Banff Town.

Lake Louise is a jewel of Banff National Park and it’s famed for its shimmering turquoise waters and the stunning Victoria Glacier overlooking it. It’s the perfect place for photography lovers, and you’ll easily understand why.

Once you get there, consider taking a hike along the lake’s shoreline trail, which is easy and offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.

The trail leads to many picturesque spots perfect for photography, especially in the early morning light when the bigger crowds aren’t there yet.

Bring along a water-resistant jacket and sturdy walking shoes, as the weather can change quickly. Don’t forget your camera and perhaps a picnic breakfast to enjoy with a view!

I recommend passing by Lake Louise Visitor Centre to get maps and brochure about the area and the different trails, as well as knowing the current conditions and avoid ending up in the wrong place.

Lunch at Mountain Restaurant

Out of all places for brunch or lunch at Lake Louise, Mountain Restaurant is probably the best value for money, with burgers, pasta, poutine, and steak, among other dishes, which are all delicious.

You’ll want to try the Bison Burger with a side of Yam fries, which is one of the best items on the menu in my opinion, for $25.50 – It’s not the cheapest dish, but considering the location, it’s not such a crazy price!

Afternoon: Moraine Lake

After exploring Lake Louise, take a short 20-minute drive to Moraine Lake, set in the breath-taking Valley of the Ten Peaks.

This lake is smaller than Lake Louise but just as stunning, with its intense blue waters and dramatic mountain surroundings. The best thing to do here is to hike the Rockpile Trail, which is relatively short and manageable but offers one of the most iconic views in Canada.

The lake’s colour is most vibrant in the midday sun, making it ideal for your afternoon excursion. Pack a lunch, wear sun protection, and bring plenty of water, as exploring the area can take a few hours.

It’s worth noting that private cars are no longer allowed at Moraine Lake, so you’ll have to take one of the following options to get there:

In all honesty, the on-site parking used to fill up in the early hours (as early as 4.00 AM!) so it makes sense to take a shuttle bus or taxi instead.

Late Afternoon: Canoeing or Relaxation at Lake Louise

Return to Lake Louise for the evening before going back to Banff for the night. You can rent a canoe to paddle on the lake, which is an amazing way to see the sunset against the mountains.

Canoe rentals are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Boathouse.

The price for a canoe rental is $160 per hour, or $95 per hour if you’re a guest. Yes, that is pricey, but it’s also worth it, and you’ll have one of the most beautiful views in the entire world.

Alternatively, if you prefer a more relaxed end to your day, find a spot along the shore to simply sit and admire the tranquillity of the lake.

It’s a perfect opportunity to reflect on the day and take in the natural beauty one last time before heading back to Banff.

Day 3: Adventure Day

Your third day is all about adventure. Start with a morning hike through Johnston Canyon, an activity that offers impressive waterfalls and lush forest trails.

In the afternoon, choose between horseback riding and mountain biking to experience the rugged landscapes of Banff National Park.

Wind down in the evening at a pub in Banff Town to relax before another day of exploration. Here’s how to make the most of your third day in Banff!

Morning: Johnston Canyon Hike

Kick off your adventure day with a hike through Johnston Canyon, one of the most beloved hiking spots in the national park, about 30 minutes’ drive from Banff Town.

I recommend getting here early as the parking lot fills up pretty quickly, and you want to secure your spot at all costs! Here, you’ll find 2 waterfalls to hike to.

The trail to the Lower Falls is a relatively easy 1.1 kilometres and includes catwalks affixed to the canyon walls, allowing you to walk along the creek.

It’s a further 1.5 kilometres to the Upper Falls, where the views are even more spectacular. Both parts of the hike are accessible for most fitness levels and are especially beautiful in the morning light. It takes about 2 hours to the Upper Falls and back.

Wear comfortable hiking shoes and bring water, a snack, and a camera to capture the stunning waterfalls and lush scenery.

If you’re planning a 7-day Banff itinerary in the winter, make sure to take or rent spikes or chains in Banff for your shoes as it gets really slippery in some parts.

Afternoon: Horseback Riding or Mountain Biking

After the hike, you can choose between horseback riding and mountain biking, both fantastic ways to experience the rugged terrain of the Rockies.

Horseback tours typically take you through scenic trails with breath-taking mountain views, offering a chance to connect with nature at a leisurely pace.

I recommend this experience, which lasts about 1 hour and starts at 12.00 PM, and that’s a great way to top off the hiking trip at Johnston Canyon. If you pick this tour, you’ll want to have lunch in Banff Town, which isn’t far from the meeting point.

On the other hand, if you choose the e-bike tour, then I suggest you have lunch near the Canyon as the meeting point is not far from the trail start.

For something more adrenaline-pumping, mountain biking is an amazing alternative. This 4-hour mountain bike tour around Johnston Canyon is sure to make you fall in love with the area even more!

Rentals and guided tours are available for both activities. Pack appropriate clothing, including helmets and gloves for biking, and perhaps a change of clothes if you opt for horseback riding.

Evening: Have Dinner and Drinks at St James’s Gate Irish Pub

Wrap up the third of your 7 day Banff itinerary by heading to St James’s Gate Irish Pub for dinner and drinks.

This laid-back pub is known for its traditional wooden bar and old-timey ambiance, offering a warm, inviting atmosphere that I could only love as a Brit, and I’m confident you’ll love it too.

The pub’s menu has hearty, comforting fare like bangers and mash and Guinness stew, which I both recommended for their authentic flavour and good sized portions.

The Guinness stew, slow-cooked and richly flavoured, pairs wonderfully with the variety of beers on tap, especially a pint of Guinness itself.

The staff are just as friendly as you can imagine, and it’s overall one of the best spots to spend the night in Banff Town.

Day 4: Cultural and Historical Sites

Focus on the cultural aspects of Banff on your fourth day. Start with a visit to the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, the birthplace of Canada’s national parks.

In the afternoon, explore the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies to learn about the region’s history and art.

Cap off the day at a local pub, which I have a personal recommendation for, so make sure to read this section until the end!

Morning: Cave and Basin National Historic Site

Start your cultural journey at the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, just a short drive from downtown Banff, before heading to the famous Banff Gondola. This site is paramount in the history of Canada’s national parks as the spot where hot springs were discovered, leading to the creation of Banff National Park.

Explore the original cave where the hot springs were found and wander around the outdoor basin, enjoying the natural setting.

Also, the entrance fee is only $9.50 and the Thermal Waters Pass costs $24, which is reasonable for the value you get.

If you want to make the most of it, you can join one of the tours below, which are more expensive and optional, but they’re always good to have:

  • Cave and Basics Tour: $71.00 per group of 28
  • Natural History Tour: $141.75 per group of 28
  • Nature’s Moments slideshow: $16.50 per person

Remember to bring a light jacket as the cave can be cool, and wear comfortable shoes for walking on uneven paths.

All in all, it’s a fantastic place to stop at on your way from Banff Town to the Gondola, which I’ll talk about here below, and you expect to spend 1 to 2 hours here.

That said, keep in mind that Cave and Basin National Historic Site only opens from Thursday to Monday from 11.00 AM to 5.00 PM, so you can start your day a little later and have breakfast in Banff Town before coming.

Morning: Banff Gondola

After exploring the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, head to the Banff Gondola for a breath-taking ascent to the summit of Sulphur Mountain.

The gondola ride offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, Banff Town, and the Bow Valley. The journey to the top takes about eight minutes, during which you can enjoy the stunning vistas – Arguably the most beautiful in Canada.

Once at the summit, explore the boardwalk that leads to Sanson’s Peak and the Sulphur Mountain Cosmic Ray Station, a National Historic Site of Canada.

You’ll also find interactive exhibits and a multi-sensory theatre at the Above Banff Interpretive Centre, which gives more information about the area’s natural history.

Don’t miss your chance to have a meal at Sky Bistro, where you can enjoy a meal with one of the most scenic views in all of Banff. Be sure to bring a camera, wear layers (as temperatures can be cooler at the summit), and have sunglasses handy for the bright daylight reflecting off the mountains!

Lunch at Sky Bistro

Enjoy a satisfying lunch at Sky Bistro after your trip up Sulphur Mountain, either by hiking or taking the gondola. This restaurant sits at the top of the mountain and offers an outstanding view of the Canadian Rockies.

Expect to pay a premium for the views, but I can’t stress how incredible they are!

It’s a good idea to book a table by the window ahead of time, especially if it’s just for two, so you can enjoy the amazing scenery while you eat.

The staff at Sky Bistro are friendly and quick to serve, making sure your meal is enjoyable from start to finish. The menu has some great options that are perfect for refuelling after your morning activities. You should definitely try the clam chowder and the duck, both are delicious and satisfying. The kale salad is a fresh, tasty choice too.

While you won’t see the town from Sky Bistro, the breath-taking mountain views more than make up for it, and it’s the perfect place for a delicious lunch.

Afternoon: Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies

After exploring natural history and taking in the views from the mountain, shift your focus to art at the Whyte Museum.

This museum is located in the heart of Banff and offers extensive exhibits on the human and natural history of the Canadian Rockies. You’ll find collections of early and contemporary mountain photography, fine art, and artifacts that illustrate the lifestyle in Banff over the decades.

Special exhibits might include works by local artists or historical exhibitions on the development of the area. The museum also features a quaint heritage home on its grounds, providing a glimpse into the past lives of Banff’s residents.

Plan to spend a couple of hours here, which is enough to see the main exhibits and art pieces. Also, the museum is open daily from 10.00 AM to 5.00 PM, which is a nice advantage over other museums around Banff.

Spend the Evening at Rose & Crown

Wrap up your day by heading to the Rose & Crown, a relaxed pub in Banff that’s perfect for a lively evening out. This place offers a variety of cocktails, brews, and classic pub grub, all served in a welcoming atmosphere.

With a rooftop patio and nightly live bands, it’s a fantastic spot to enjoy some entertainment and unwind after a day roaming around the national park and Banff Town itself.

During your visit, you might want to try some of their standout dishes. I highly recommend their poutine, as well as the French onion soup, and the crispy fish and chips – all worth ordering.

Service at Rose & Crown is quick and considerate, striking the right balance between attentiveness and giving you space to enjoy your meal.

Rose & Crown stays open until 2:00 AM even on weekdays, making it one of the best spots in Banff to experience live music and a vibrant night scene.

Day 5: Day Trip to Yoho National Park

Take a day trip to Yoho National Park, a stunning locale near Banff. Begin with the awe-inspiring Takakkaw Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in Canada.

Then, visit Emerald Lake to enjoy its striking colour and tranquil surroundings.

Conclude your day at the Natural Bridge, a remarkable geological formation that offers unique photo opportunities and a chance to see the natural forces at work in Yoho.

While I recommended staying in Banff Town as a base for your 7-day Banff itinerary, Yoho National Park on day 5 and Athabasca Glacier on day 6 are a little far, so you’ll want to sleep nearby.

Morning: Takakkaw Falls

Start your day trip to Yoho National Park with a visit to Takakkaw Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in Canada. The drive to the falls takes about an hour and a half from Banff, with scenic views along the way, so get ready to stop a few times for photos.

Before entering the park, you’ll have to pay the admission fee, which is $11.00 per person or $22.00 per family/group, and I can assure you it’s worth every single penny!

Once there, you’ll take a short 20-minute walk from the parking area through a well-marked trail leads you to the base of the falls.

The waterfall is spectacular, with waters plunging dramatically over a cliff into the Yoho River.

Early morning is ideal for visiting as the area is less crowded and the light is perfect for photography. Plus, you’ll have plenty of parking spots in the morning.

Lastly, make sure to bring waterproof gear if you want to get close, as the spray can soak you on windier days.

Lunch at Truffle Pigs Bistro & Lodge

On your way from Takakkaw Falls to Emerald Lake, stop for a hearty, succulent lunch at Truffle Pigs Bistro & Lodge, a charming dining spot known for its fresh, locally-sourced cuisine.

Located in the heart of Yoho National Park, this bistro offers a cosy atmosphere, making it a perfect place to relax and refuel between the morning and afternoon.

The menu often features seasonal specialties, and popular choices including hearty sandwiches, salads, burgers, and even vegan options.

Whether you’re in the mood for a light bite or a more substantial meal, Truffle Pigs Bistro provides a satisfying dining experience that you’ll love.

Afternoon: Emerald Lake

After having fun at Takakkaw Falls and enjoying a delicious lunch, make your way to Emerald Lake, about an one-hour drive from the falls.

This lake is famous for its vivid turquoise-coloured water and magical setting surrounded by towering mountains.

Rent a canoe to paddle around the lake and enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings, or take a walk around the lake trail which takes about an hour to complete and is relatively flat.

It’s worth noting that renting a canoe costs $90 per hour, and despite being expensive, it’s cheaper than at Lake Louise.

The lake also has a picnic area, so in case you didn’t have lunch on the way from the Falls, you can bringing a lunch to enjoy with the view.

Evening: Natural Bridge

Conclude your day in Yoho National Park with a visit to the Natural Bridge, a unique rock formation that spans the flow of the Kicking Horse River.

It’s just a short drive from Emerald Lake, which is convenient. This natural stone bridge is a striking geological feature, where you can see water forcefully carving through rock.

The site offers several vantage points to see and photograph the bridge against the backdrop of the river and forest.

Make sure to pay a visit to the Natural Bridge Lower Falls, which is yet another incredible place for photos in Banff!

Spend the Night at Lake Louise Inn

After a full day of exploring Yoho National Park, settle in for the night at Lake Louise Inn, which is conveniently located on the way to Icefields Parkway, which is what day 6 is all about.

The rooms at Lake Louise Inn are designed to maximize your comfort, featuring a flat-screen cable TV and a coffee machine, ensuring you feel at home. Each room offers a private bathroom equipped with a hairdryer, and many rooms boast views of the impressive surrounding mountains.

There are 2 on-site restaurants, which is excellent if you don’t feel like heading out.

Legends Restaurant offers a menu full of hearty meals suitable for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while the Timberwolf Pizza and Pasta Café is ideal for family dining with its relaxed atmosphere.

Additional amenities at the inn include an indoor heated pool and hot tubs, perfect for relaxing your muscles after outdoor activities.

In short, it’s one of the best, most convenient places to stay in the area, and I recommend booking now to secure your room.

Day 6: Icefields Parkway and Jasper Excursion

The Icefields Parkway is one of the most beautiful drives in the world, heading to the Columbia Icefield and its skywalk, and you simply can’t skip it on this 7 day Banff itinerary.

Explore the massive icefields and take a guided tour of the Athabasca Glacier. On your return, make stops at key viewpoints to fully appreciate the expansive landscapes.

I recommend spending the last night in Banff Town to make the departure smoother and more convenient as a whole.

Morning: Drive to Columbia Icefield

After a good night’s sleep and breakfast at Lake Louise Inn, get on a drive along the Icefields Parkway, one of the most beautiful highway stretches in the world, towards the Columbia Icefield.

The journey from Lake Louise to the Columbia Icefield covers approximately 130 kilometres (80 miles) and offers stunning views of towering mountains, vast icefields, and pristine lakes.

Allow about two hours for the drive, considering you’ll likely stop to capture photos of the landscapes.

Once you get there, make your first stop at the Columbia Icefield Skywalk – A glass-floored observation platform extending 30 meters out over the Sunwapta Valley.

It’s a fun experience, quite different from the activities you did on this 7 day Banff itinerary so far, allowing you to walk above the sunning glacier-formed landscapes and peer down to a 280-meter drop.

Be sure to bring your camera for this visit—the panoramic views are stunning and offer a unique perspective of the rugged mountain terrain.

There’s a Starbucks, a gift store, a restaurant, and a café here, so you can have a snack or a meal before heading to the next stop, the Athabasca Glacier.

Afternoon: Athabasca Glacier Tour

In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the Athabasca Glacier, one of the most accessible glaciers in North America.

This is a highlight of the Icefields Parkway and offers a unique opportunity to walk on, feel, and drink from a glacier. The tour typically involves travelling to the middle of the glacier, where you can step out onto the ice and experience the glacier up close.

The tours are educational, focusing on the geology, glaciology, and environmental impacts on the glacier.

The best part? You can actually take some glacier water home with you, so don’t forget to bring a bottle!

Note that taking a tour is optional. However, as someone who highly values adventure and independent trips, I can tell you that it is very much worth it and you’ll love your time!

Evening: Drive Back to Banff with Scenic Stops

This 7 day Banff itinerary is coming to an end, and it’s time for the return drive to Banff, with several stops at key viewpoints along the Icefields Parkway.

I recommend passing by and stopping at Peyto Lake, which is known for its vivid blue waters shaped like a wolf, and the Weeping Wall, a series of waterfalls cascading down a cliff face.

The drive back is the perfect time to capture sunset photos and enjoy the tranquillity of the Rockies as the day winds down.

Plan to return by early evening, so you have time to pack for the departure from Banff and have a nice, last dinner in town.

Day 7: Leisure and Departure

Spend your final morning in Banff indulging in some last-minute shopping along Banff Avenue. The avenue is lined with shops offering everything from high-end outdoor apparel to unique local crafts and art.

It’s the perfect place to find souvenirs that capture the spirit of the Rockies, such as handmade jewellery, custom woodwork, and indigenous art.

If you have enough time, why not go for a spa session? Banff is home to several spas that offer a range of services from massages and facials to complete wellness treatments using local minerals and elements.

And of course, complete your itinerary with a final meal on Banff Avenue!

Final Thoughts

As this 7 day Banff itinerary comes to a close, you’ll find yourself reflecting on the experiences and stunning views that have filled your days.

I’m pretty confident you’ll have a fabulous time around Banff National Park, and if you have any suggestion, or feel like I missed something, feel free to comment here below!
