The tiny Canadian town of Banff is often a winter getaway. But, in truth, the warm months offer just as much as the chilly ones. So, put down the Netflix and get out of the house! Make the most of the rest of summer in Banff, Alberta, by riding your Harley from Calgary Harley-Davidson out to one of these appealing destination activities.
Watch the Sunset
The gorgeous landscape of Banff is no mystery, so it’s no wonder that the place is filled with gorgeous places to watch the sunset. Ride out to Mount Norquay or to the docks at Vermillion Lake for a breathtaking view of an everyday display that’s too often overlooked.
Visit Banff Upper Hot Springs
If you’re looking for something particularly relaxing, nothing will do it quite like a soak in a hot spring with mountain views.
Ride to Lake Minnewanka
As the largest lake in the national park, Lake Minnewanka has plenty of space for picnics, calming walks around the water, and summer fishing that runs through late August.
Swap Your Harley for a Horse
Don’t worry—we only mean temporarily! Nothing can transport you to simpler times or give you a fresh perspective like viewing beautiful nature from the back of a strong, sweet animal. Banff has several companies who offer horseback-riding experiences.
