> WHEN YOU GO
Stay: Lining the main route from Banff to Jasper, Fairmont’s historic hotels — the Banff Springs, Chateau Lake Louise and Jasper Park Lodge (Fairmont.com) — provide luxury amidst the wilderness. Each has its own character and stories, and place you minutes from the area’s main attractions, both natural and man-made. Parks Canada: To celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday, entry into all of Canada’s national parks will be free all year. More information about Banff, Jasper and Waterton Lakes National Parks can be found at the Parks Canada website, pc.gc.ca.
