We bid farewell to our lovely Lake Louise hotel and boarded the bus for the short trip to Banff. On the way we visited Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge. This is a solid granite rock formation shaped like a bridge.

Upon arrival in Banff we travelled on the Banff Gondola to the top of Sulfur Mountain. Very steep ascent to a very high …

Exploring the Castle

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda on Jun 26, 2014

We set off to explore this large and imposing castle hotel which seems to be a city in itself. Past the castle pantry in which all the food is very much do-it-yourself and involves great skill with the microwave, we moved on through the lobby where the lady with the harp was in full swing. We decided to find all the restaurants (no mean feat in …

Lakes, Hoodoos and Hot Springs!

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda on Jun 25, 2014

We took a yellow taxi up to the Banff sightseeing gondola on Sulphur Mountain. There were quite a few clouds but we still had some good views of our hotel and the golf course. We followed the long wooden walkway all the way to the Cosmic Ray station and saw the site of an early weather station built in 1903. There were many very tame striped ground …

On the road from Lake Louise to Banff

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda on Jun 24, 2014

We might have like to stay here longer and explore the beautiful scenery, but we had to tear ourselves away from the beautiful view from our window and set off on our travels once again. This time our driver was Max, a very pleasant young Argentinian guy who is a very experienced mountain and park guide as well as provider of challenging outdoor …

So in the past week I have worked about 52 hours and been to Banff, Calgary (briefly) and Lethbridge! Sitting on the greyhound heading back to Lake Louise after an awesome 2 days off visiting my new friend Dan! I met him while I was in Banff the weekend before. He's pretty hilarious, but won't let me take his picture, so I have to do it when he's …

    A Brief Sojourn in the Highlands of the Canadian Rockies!

    The location is very special and the views are magnificent. This hotel is styled on an old Scottish castle. Very impressive but absolutely huge and much larger than any castle we have come across in Scotland! Our room was large and comfortable with all the expected facilities. Unfortunately they weren't very good at topping up tissues, toilet paper and tea bags but we have noticed the same problem at the other Fairmont hotels we have stayed in during our visit to Canada. There is a fantastic array of restaurants, but don't set your heart on dining in any particular one of them because you are more likely than not to find it is closed for a function! Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay very much. The service was generally very good and the servers polite and friendly. The overall feel was historic and a bit special, well worth a visit.

    This hotel is amazing. Our first room was 220 sq ft and too small. Then we upgraded and felt much better. Staff is great, views fabulous, and food is very good.

    This is an amazing hotel, rooms large, amazing views of the Rockies. Outdoor heated pool to relax in while soaking I. The incredible scenery.
    Every sort of shop and restraint is here too, 15 min walk, or a bus out front, to the centre of town
