North American National Park #7 – Banff National Park, Alberta

Banff is probably the best known national park in Canada. Located in the Canadian Rockies, just a 90 minute drive from Calgary, it is also one of the more accessible national parks in Canada. Part of the fame of Banff comes the fact that it is also Canada’s oldest national park. Established in 1885, just 13 years after the creation of Yellowstone National Park, making it one of the oldest national parks in the world.

The most popular attraction in the park is Lake Louise, which is also the location of the Fairmont Lake Louise Chateau, which is one of the most famous hotels in the world.

Banff also has the distinction of bordering three other national parks: Jasper National Park to the north, Yoho National Park in British Columbia to the West, and Kootenay National Park, also in British Columbia, to the South East.
