Seniors in Banff

Banff National Park is renowned for its accessibility, opening up fantastic experiences to visitors of all ages, including seniors. In Banff you can sip on a cappuccino, ride the gondola, rent a canoe, and enjoy a live performance all on the same day. How much you want to pack into your day is up to you!

Banff is the perfect place for the young-at-heart who are keen to make their mark on the mountain trails and ski slopes, as well as for those who are keen to keep their national park experience more low-key. In addition to beautiful walking trails and soft recreation, superb cultural experiences, such as the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies and the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, are the perfect way to get to know the history of this fascinating area.

The Banff Seniors Centre, located at 101 Bear Street and just a short walk from Banff Park Lodge, welcomes visiting seniors with open arms.
