Beauty of Banff: Why Your Next Vacation Should Be in Canada

The crisp, cool air at the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort is unlike anything you’ll find in America. You’ll marvel at this resort, located in Alberta, Canada, which looks as if it were painted in front of a stunning mountainous backdrop. If you’re looking for a scenic area to travel with Global Discovery Vacations, get to know Banff.

Nestled at the base of the Rundle and Cascade Mountains of Banff National Park, the resort feels secluded but you’ll find a smorgasbord of activities in the area. Whether you want to explore the mountains, parks or downtown area, it’s all just minutes away.

Resort Amenities

Your one- or two-bedroom condo offers all the comforts of home.

  • Prepare family meals in the full kitchen.
  • Cozy up next to the fireplace on those chilly nights.
  • Slip into the sauna, burn some calories at the recreation center or swim in the indoor and outdoor pool.
  • For an extra fee, you can play tennis or squash.
  • And if you need a quick meal, visit Pepper’s Deli and Grill on-site.

Plus, the complimentary shuttle will take you to downtown Banff. Expand your palate at The Grizzly House where you’ll find 14 varieties of beef ranging from rattlesnake to lobster to shark.

  1. We stayed here last year and LOVED it. Our condo was small but so efficient and cozy. One of our favorite Global stays to date!

  2. Is this the the only Banff property available? Looking for a 2 bedroom for late summer or fall 2014.

    • Hi Susan,

      Yes, this is the only resort that we have in Banff, but since we don’t keep peak season inventory online, we suggest you call a Condominium Consultant at 866-467-9007. One of our representatives will be glad to help you find what you’re looking for!

      -Happy Travels!

  3. What kind of inventory is available for snow skiing in Jan. or Feb. Considering a small group for 4 to 6 people.

    • Hi Keith,

      We’d love to help, but that is a question for our Vacation Specialists. Just give them a call at 800-879-7779 and one of our representatives would be glad to answer all of your booking questions.
