The only nice thing I can say about Banff NP is that it is in the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains. It is way to crowded, to commercial and way over-priced. We cut our week long reservations down to 3 days. Very disappointed in it.
Lived Jasper National Park in Alberta with the exception that Canada’s National Parks are pretty touristy. Not at all like our NP back home, they have cities and highway systems right inside their parks. They do cater more to the “tourist”. Jasper is a quaint town and the surrounding Rockies are amazing. Pic description to follow..sorry wifi up in CA is very spotty.
