Banff in the summer

So yesterday I took a day trip to Banff National Park. Just an hour and a half’s drive from Calgary. We picked the perfect day for it – glorious sunshine and blue skies!

For those of you who don’t know too much about Banff, it’s located in Alberta’s rocky mountains (also known as the ‘Canadian Rockies’) and is the oldest national park in Canada. The rocky mountain peaks surround the picture-perfect mountain town of Banff, which is filled with quaint boutiques, gift shops and eateries.

We arrived in Banff around 11am and decided to take the gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain. At the top, we got to enjoy 360° views of the national park. Truly stunning! There was comfy seating and we packed a small picnic to enjoy whilst admiring the views, a good way to avoid paying touristy prices in the restaurant there!

We then spent some time wandering around the tourist shops in the town of Banff, stopping halfway for a beer at a lovely rooftop bar!

After that, we grabbed an early supper at a ‘cheap and cheerful’ diner and then headed over to a cute bakery/candy store for bear claws! What a fabulous day!
