Welcome to the alpine wonderland of Sunshine Village, one of three major resorts located within Banff National Park. Sitting on top of the Continental Divide at an elevation of 7,200 ft (2,195 m), you’ll have uninterrupted views of this awe-inspiring mountain terrain. Known as Canada’s number one hiking area, Sunshine Village offers tranquil nature walks, gondola rides, biking, and hot springs, and is only minutes from the town of Banff. Six hiking trails wind their way through the untouched wilderness around Sunshine Meadows and Sunshine Village. Surrounded by the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, there are breathtaking views everywhere you turn. After enjoying your fill of the natural beauty on display, spend the night at Sunshine Mountain Lodge, a one-of-a-kind luxury resort that’s both rustic and refined. Sit by the fire at Chimney Corners, gazing out the enormous bay windows while indulging in a hearty lunch. Or if fine dining is on the menu, the Eagle’s Nest features western delicacies like salmon, AAA Alberta beef, and bison. Sunshine Mountain Lodge may feel remote, but it’s the perfect place to be pampered. 28
