National Park Passes

The townsite of Banff is located in Banff National Park. All visitors must have a park pass for entry. As part of Canada's 150th Birthday, Parks Canada has waived National Park fees for 2017!  You will still need to stop at the kiosks at the park entry to receive a pass if you do not have one.
