Had a beautiful day relaxing on the train while everything passed us by. We saw some of the most amazing Rocky Country, from Glacier filled lakes to white water rapids and awesome snow covered mountains. We saw a baby black bear on the train tracks - don't worry he got away (sorry girls no photos of this one) and some really cute Caribou bathing in ...
... stopped at Sunwapta Falls (turbulent water) for a snack then walked up to see the Falls themselves. We were pleased to see a red squirrel scampering about under the trees. It is lovely to see so many red squirrels here, especially as there are so few of them left now in the UK.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBlue Mountain Lodge Banff
Stayed for a month in four different rooms. Some rooms are better than others, but they all had their pros and cons. All showers were a little small. Free breakfast was great. Staff and owners were very kind. Right next to downtown (1 minute walk to Banff Avenue with all sorts of stores, restaurants and bars). Very cheap for location and private rooms.
