Fun is all about attitude. It's about getting out there and experiencing life, whatever place you find yourself in. It can be exhilarating and a rush. But, sometimes fun is unexpected. Fun can sometimes be the stories you tell after doing something weird or different. A lot of people come to Banff and miss out on unique and fun things, choosing instead to walk up and down Banff Avenue. Banff is famous for its landscapes, its wildlife, and its adventurous spirit. For over 100 years, it has been Canada's most popular mountain escape. It has miles and miles of back-country to explore, places to unwind, festivals to enjoy. Having fun in Banff is easy, you just have to get off the beaten track, sometimes.
Warner Guiding and Outfitting is a horseback riding company, but they also offer sleigh and carriage rides. Getting out to the back-country, where the hoards of tourists can't come along, is the best way to enjoy the mountains. Warner provides day trips and also longer camping trips by horseback. Other companies, such as Brewster and Canadian Adventure Centre, also have horseback riding options.
The Banff Springs Golf Course is world-famous for a good reason. Very few golf courses have the same quality of mountain scenery and the quality of the greens and fairways. This course has hosted a lot of big golf tournaments over the years, and it's one of the few courses in Canada to be in the video games! It's a fun experience to golf with deer and elk in the gallery.
A trip to Banff National Park is not complete without a trip to Lake Louise. This is both a beautiful natural setting and a recreation wonderland. There's a lot to do around Lake Louise, including skiing, hiking, skating, canoeing, dog sledding, etc. But, Moraine Lake is the more beautiful of the mountain lakes, and it should not be ignored.
