The beautiful Banff town comes alive with Christmas carols in November, with the Santa Claus Parade of Lights. The parade happens at Banff Avenue.
Visit the Banff Christmas markets for that traditional European style Christmas market. The markets are set up at 100 Sundance Rd, end of November each year.
Every year in December, you can meet Santa Claus and get treats from him at the Banff Gondola. The gondola summit also has an interactive centre (Santa’s workshop) from the North Pole.
Lake Louise transforms into a skater’s paradise with snowy mountains in winter.
Enjoy winter hikes in and around Banff town and Lake Louise.
