The Banff Blog
We’re Cameron and Natasha, and we have been writing about travel for the last decade. In 2017, we found one of the world’s most beautiful places: The Canadian Rockies. Now we spend as much time as possible exploring the mountains surrounding us.
We think this is one of the most spectacular areas and the perfect place for an outdoor vacation. We aim to help you get the most out of your trip to Banff National Park and the surrounding areas.
