The Perfect Time to See Banff


Emerald Lake

Emerald Lake

Banff is without a doubt one of the most incredible places I have ever visited. From Turquoise glacier fed lakes to staggering Canadian peaks and let us not forget the BOMB maple syrup. A place this beautiful can naturally get quite busy during tourist season, around June to September. In the winter, the area sees feet of snow and roads can he dangerous and impassible, with the signature blue rivers and lakes being covered in ice and snow.

SO what is a traveler to do?! GO IN OCTOBER. During early October, almost all attractions are still open, roads are clear, there are few tourists and best of all, the peaks begin to get coated with snow! Since October is considered "shoulder season" between the busy summer and skiing tourism in the winter, prices for flight!s and lodging is much cheaper and you have the chance to upgrade at a major discount. So, if you are looking for a fall getaway or looking for the best time to visit the Canadian Rockies, consider October, you won't regret it!
