One of the best Banff accommodation choices for summer photography in the Canadian Rockies is Simpson’s Num-ti-jah Lodge, located along the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper.
Spectacularly set on the edge of glimmering Bow Lake and surrounded by a sea of towering Rocky Mountain peaks, this beautiful Banff resort is more eco-lodge than true hotel. It’s considered to be prime accommodation for nature photographers coming to Banff because of it’s gorgeous locale away from the hustle and bustle of the towns of Banff and Jasper.
Photograph to your heart’s content at a number of prime photo locations within a 20 mile (30 km) drive of the lodge, including Bow Lake, Crowfoot Glacier, Peyto Lake, and Upper and Lower Waterfowl Lakes. Photographers can easily spend 4-5 days in this area alone.
Reserve your spot for the summer months early, as this Banff accommodation gem books up early!
