Banff is one of the main towns within this protected area of southern Canada, but with a low level of inhabitants due to the controlled conservation of its natural environment.
In addition, as part of the Rocky Mountains, Banff has mountainous terrain, with numerous dense coniferous forests and alpine landscapes with excellent rock climbing options. The different types of rock that we will find here, propose us objectives for different physical and technical levels.
Among the main points of interest for rock climbers, we find Mount Buffalo (located a few kilometers from Banff), currently known as Mount Tunnel. There are also other popular mountains around Banff, such as Mount Rundle (2,949 m), Mount Cascade (2,998 m), Mount Norquay (2,134 m) and Sulfur Mountain (2,281 m) which can be reached by cable car.
