Do a little Stay-cation

Imagine lazying in a hot tub overlooking the beautiful snow capped mountains. I stayed at the Falcon Crest Lodge (at their off season prices) and the views from their balcony are so mesmerizing.

Banff also has hot springs, where you can view the amazing mountains. The Banff Upper Hot Springs has a hot pool that is located outdoors and while in the pool, you can look across the valley to Mount Rundle.

Welcome the winter in Style

Welcome winters in style in Banff. The Banff National Park has so many amazing sights that spending winters here looks like a glamorous venture.

Snow-capped mountains, frozen lakes, cabins beside lakes, star gazing from fairy-tale hotel rooms, hot-springs and wine with amazing back-drops to name a few

Come and see for yourself. Who knows you might start a new family-winter tradition here in Banff?

Lake Louise: A frozen paradise

Mid to Late November is that perfect spot to visit Banff during winters. Not many tourists and many resort options to choose from.

Lake Louise was covered in snow when we visited. The mountains were barely visible and all you can see is the beautiful winter-land. I was able to capture so many stunning shots with no one around. That’s a benefit for travelling in winter, for sure!
