A Practical 3-Day Banff Itinerary To Escape The Crowds This Summer

Summer in Banff National Park was usually wildly chaotic: massive tourist crowds, inflated hotel rates, and long lines at attractions. We Calgarians would just take a day trip to Banff from Calgary or stay away from Banff altogether during the summertime.

But this year is quite different due to the pandemic. With borders closed, we have Banff all to ourselves. Today, we want to show you the beauty of Banff in July and August and how to spend 3 days in Banff.

Instead of outlining the typical top things to do in Banff National Park, we will help you discover the lesser-known attractions. So that even when the crowds eventually come back one day (it 100% will), you know exactly where to go and what to do in Banff to escape the crowds.

Without further ado, let’s dive into this Banff summer itinerary!
