Banff National Park is one of the popular national parks of Canada. Banff National Park is located in Western Canada in the state of Alberta. Banff National Park is about an hour drive from Calgary, and attracts millions of tourists annually. For us, Banff National Park, the last park we visited during our trip through Western Canada. We wanted to hike at Moraine Lake. But unfortunately here was a walking ban for groups smaller than 4 persons because Grizzly bear activity. Since we like walking, we walked only a short walk along the Shore of Moraine Lake. The walk along the shore of Moraine Lake is also well worth seeing. The nature around Moraine Lake is beautiful.

Another walk was that we wanted to walk is to the popular Lake Louise. There was no grizzly bear warning, so we went to Lake Louise for a hike to the Plain of the Six Glaciers.
Banff National Park is connected to Jasper National Park, Yoho National Park, Kootenay National Park and Kananaskis Country. In Banff National Park are many hiking trails. Mountain biking, whitewater rafting and glacier walking are possible in Banff National Park. At the visitor center you can get the latest information about the condition of the trails and and information on closed trails. You can also get the visitor maps and information brochures about the different walks. The Icefields Parkway lies for a great part in Banff National Park and is known as one of the finest highway of the world.

We combined our visit to Banff National Park with Yoho National Park and Kananaskis Country. The owner of our B & B in Canmore showed us the best places to see in Banff National Park, so we enjoyed the two days we were in Banff National Park. We arrived late September in Banff National Park. Most tourists are all gone and the trees drop their special yellow autumn colors for us to see.
