The Duo Behind The Banff Blog
Hello, we’re Cameron and Natasha, and welcome to our website! We have been writing about travel for the last decade, and as we were traveling Western Canada in 2017, we found one of the world’s most beautiful places: The Canadian Rockies. We searched hard and wide across the world and eventually realized that we couldn’t think of a better place to settle down than stunning Alberta.
Now, we spend as much time as possible exploring the mountains surrounding us. Whether biking and hiking in the summer or snowboarding and cross-country skiing in the winter, we are obsessed with exploring these mountains and want to make it easier for you to explore as well.
We think Western Canada is the perfect place for an outdoor vacation, and now, our main goal is to help you get the most out of your trip to Banff National Park and the surrounding areas. On this website, you’ll find plenty of things to do, hiking suggestions, restaurant recommendations, and example itineraries so that you can plan at ease.
