Water Sports in Banff


Johnsons Lake - Taken August 12th 2011

Did someone say it’s August 16th? We’re not sure how that happened so quickly (it often does), but that doesn’t mean it’s time to bundle up and brace for winter. There are still a glorious number of days to grab hold of the warmth still yet to come, with the end of August and fantastic fall on the way; we’ve got some activities to help you savor summer.

What says Canadian summer more than a day by the lake, and believe us, you’ve got your pick in Banff National Park. Once you’ve driven to Banff, you might not fancy going much further, which is lucky for you because there are a number of beautiful lakes on your doorstep. These include Vermillion Lakes, Cascade Ponds, Johnson Lake, Two Jack Lake, Lake Minnewanka and Spray Lakes.

Great for all ages and giving you a view like no other. Head down to the Blue Canoe docks in town to rent a canoe or kayak for a couple hours. Paddle up the Bow River or take the route to the peaceful Vermillion Lakes, for an unrivaled view of the area. Top Tip: Paddling back is downstream and is half the effort and the time!

Upper Hot Springs
Great at any time of year, enjoy the natural mineral waters at Banff Upper Hot Springs situated on Sulphur Mt. Soak up the view along with the spring water. Passes are also available on our Sightsee and Soak package!

Okay, we won’t pretend that our summers aren’t without the odd shower, so when the heavens do open, we do have Banff’s only indoor waterslides to keep you occupied! Everyone is welcome!

NEWSFLASH! We also have great savings available with our Summer Spectacular Saver with rooms for the end of August from $139 and September from $125! Click here for more information.

Savor summer, there’s still so much left to do!
