Relax and Be Pampered in Banff Spa After Your Canadian Rockies Adventure
You really can have it all in Banff, Canada and Banff, National Park Skiing in winter, mountain biking in summer. Hiking, trekking, fishing, rock climbing, mountaineering, sightseeing, cycling, boating, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and wildlife viewing – you can do it all while surrounded by the scenic beauty and panoramic vistas of the Canadian Rockies.
But what about when it’s time to relax? Maybe you overdid it today, eh sport? Legs and back a little stiff after tackling that double-diamond on the mountain bike? Did hiking up Sulphur Mountain take a bit out of you? No worries – this is Banff, where you can indulge in indoor luxury after outdoor play. There are a number of spas and fitness centers in and around Banff town that can cater to your needs, be it aromatherapy, Swedish massage, or an entire program of holistic treatments. Weather not cooperating and you can’t get outdoors? No worries, you can hit a gym!
