Banff: Getting there and around

Getting there and around

Getting there

Nearest airport: Calgary International Airport (YYC).

Distance to resort: 140km (88 miles).

Driving time: 1 hour 30 minutes.

Getting around

Most places in Banff are within walking distance of each other, but it can become bitterly cold at times; so if you're not staying in the centre, grab a taxi. Alternatively, some hotels operate shuttles.

A public bus runs between the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, Banff Avenue and Tunnel Mountain at the far end of town. A ski bus links various points in town and the ski areas (including Lake Louise); this is a free service for those holding a Tri-area lift pass.
