Banff – Canadian Rockies Backpacking

Banff National Park boasts a myriad of backpacking experiences in the Canadian Rockies’ stunning mountain wilderness. A backpacker can access those exclusive, hard-to-reach areas visited by a limited number of Banff’s tourists. Backpacking in Banff National Park offers 1,500 km of trails, 50 backcountry campsites, two trail shelters, four backcountry lodges, several alpine huts, two commercial horse outfitters, and numerous licensed guide services.

The more popular and accessible areas have well-maintained trails and designated campsites with amenities such as outhouses, tent pads, food storage cables, picnic tables, and metal fire grates at sites where campfires are allowed. You must camp at designated primitive campsites or stay at trail shelters indicated on your Wilderness Pass.

The trails in the more remote parts of the park are not as well-maintained and backpackers must be prepared for random camping. You will have to cross rivers as there are few bridges. The remote areas may require route-finding skills, and as such, have minimal evidence of human presence.
