Getting from Calgary Airport to Banff National Park

Getting from Calgary Airport to Banff National Park

Banff National Park, Alberta

Considering Calgary is only a 90 minute drive to Banff (when you don’t get lost), it really seems like a thousand miles away. They are very, very different places. If you are going to be visiting Canmore, Banff or Lake Louise to get away from the rat race and the big cities then what you will want to do is get the first bus from the airport to these gorgeous towns. Really, it couldn’t be easier. There are a few companies that do this service. You will find their desks at the exit of the airport but if you want to book beforehand, which you should in peak season, here is all the info.

The feeling as you enter Banff is one of immense excitement and serenity.

SunDog Tours and Banff Airporter

Many a time I have travelled on both of these buses. Price wise they are similar – around the $50 mark. The drivers were always professional and fun. You just tell them the hotel you are going to be staying in and within an hour and a half you will be dropped to the door of your hotel ready to start your vacation.

It is a truly great feeling when you see the mountains for the first time as you come towards Kananaskis Country and when the Banff exit sign pops up, no matter how many times you have been, you get excited. Banff National Park and Lake Louise are two of the most beautiful places in the world and there is no time to waste in getting there from the big cities!

See Banff Live and book your Banff Airporter.
