Is Canada whispering its charms to you? Banff & Lake Louise Tourism has launched a Trip Planner tool allowing travellers to plan their dream holiday to the Canadian Rockies seamlessly.

Integrated into the BLLT website, the tool delivers an interactive planner to build custom itineraries featuring ideas for inspiration among three themes: Experiences, Accommodation plus Food & Drink.

Travellers can select future dates, name a trip and then drop and drag a variety of experiences into each day in Banff National Park.

Once saved, the planner itemises a day-by-day outline of the experiences with need-to know-information, distances, time required and a mapping reference.

The tool allows travellers to build a personalised itinerary or use a number of pre-built itineraries for inspiration including; Nurture Yourself in Nature, Walk on the Wild Side and Christmas in the Mountains.

Year-round experiences include the coming winter season from December to April, covering skiing at one of three mountain resorts; dog sledding; ice skating; sampling regional cuisine on the Eat the Castle tour; and soaking in the vistas from the Banff Gondola.

Possible summer 2022 experiences include canoeing on Lake Louise; driving the Ice Fields Parkway; taking a ride on an Ice Explorer to the fast-vanishing Athabasca Glacier; and cruising along the Bow Valley Parkway, a renowned wildlife corridor in Banff National Park.

To enhance the visitor experience, the Trip Planner helps reduce congestion in key locations in Banff National Park by encouraging sustainable transit options.

Additional planning ahead tips and inspiration for what to do the park can be found at www.banfflakelouise.com
