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.
