Banff, Canada is one of the most romantic places on earth! This makes choosing Banff for your honeymoon a no brainer when it comes to picking a place to enjoy your special week away!

Banff town, the nearby Lake Louise, and Banff National Park are the most ideal honeymoon destinations in the world in my eyes!

In fact, I recently got engaged in Banff (she said yes…YAY!) and enjoyed an amazing few days visiting beautiful locations and enjoying romantic activities with my new fiancée, Bailey. It was a dream come true that left us with memories we’ll remember for the rest of our lives!

But it wasn’t easy. In fact, it actually took a lot of research to plan the perfect romantic Banff holiday (partly because I was so nervous).  

So, if you’re planning your honeymoon in Banff (or if you’re also planning to pop the question) then this blog is perfect for you! After much research and planning, I executed the perfect romantic holiday and I’m going to show you how to as well.

For the guys planning to propose, don’t worry, I got you covered, and for the girls planning their romantic week away, this blog has everything you need too!

The 7 Most Romantic Honeymoon Hotels in Banff

The first step (and likely the most important) to planning your honeymoon in Banff is to pick the right hotel. Luckily, Banff is filled with amazing places to stay to suit every budget.

In no particular order, here are the best honeymoon hotels in Banff including what makes them ideal for your romantic getaway:

1. Fairmont Banff Springs

Location:1.7 km from Banff town centre
Prices starting at: $370 USD during low season

The Fairmont Banff Springs is a beautiful hotel located in the foothills of Banff overlooking the Bow River. Its location is just outside of the main town center which provides a more tranquil setting surrounded by nature.

The hotel is 5-stars and has not one, but two pools onsite both indoors and outdoors. The beautiful spa and wellness center is perfect for spoiling yourselves and really making the most of your honeymoon in Banff National Park.

This is really one of the best hotels in Banff. Although rooms start at $370 USD in the low season, expect to pay well over $550 USD per night during summer and winter – a price tag still worth what this hotel offers in my opinion!

2. Rimrock Resort Hotel

the Banff Gondola

The Rimrock Resort Hotel is another luxury hotel located just outside of Banff in a stunning location. From the hotel, the views of the surrounding area will have you breathless. The pine trees that border the hotel will also make you feel like the busy streets of Banff are hundreds of miles away.

This hotel has a 5-star rating and comes with luxurious furnishings and features including an indoor pool, hot tub, and wellness center.

Although 5-stars, the hotel’s price range makes it much more affordable for the budget traveler, however, if you want their most luxurious rooms with the best views expect to pay much more!

3. Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is arguably the most beautifully located hotel in Canada. It sits on the shores of Lake Louise and is the only hotel of its kind. From your doorstep, you can venture out on many hiking trails and enjoy all the activities Lake Louise offers.

As far as romantic locations go, it doesn’t get much better than this!

Inside the hotel, you can enjoy the usual luxuries you would expect at a hotel like this such as a stunning restaurant, swimming pool, bar, and a wellness center. Although only a 4-star hotel, its location and views make it as 5-star as ever!

For its location, the price tag of $328 USD in low season sounds like a good deal! This is truly a world-class hotel in a romantic location!

The Barker Creek Mountain Resort is a unique hotel located far from the busy tourist hot spots in Banff and Lake Louise.

This remote location makes this rustic, but luxurious, hotel a great choice for those wanting some peace and quiet. The only thing you’ll hear out there is the sound of the fire crackling in your fireplace and the water running down the Bow River.

Despite its remote location, the hotel still gives its guests plenty of luxuries including a fireplace in every room and some even with a private spa bath! The log cabin design is neat and with comfortable beds and private porches, your stay is sure to be pleasant.

If you came to Banff to get among nature, spot some wildlife, and cozy up to your better half this is a great hotel!

This 4-star hotel features modern, well-furnished rooms that are spacious. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the busy Banff streets and the surrounding Rocky Mountains.

The 4-star hotel features a mineral pool and spa both indoors and perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring with your new fiancee. The bar and restaurant come recommended by previous guests and the spa and wellness center are sure to pamper your loved one!

Last but certainly not least, is the Rundlestone Lodge. This beautiful hotel is located in Banff on the quiet end of town around a 5-minute walk from the main streets. I personally love this hotel and stayed in the Spa Bath Loft Suite during my recent engagement trip to Banff.

The private spa bath was a great feature and the downstairs bar and restaurant proved to be a nice place to spend late nights after exploring the national park. Our room was very spacious and came with everything we needed.

Overall, this is a great budget option right in Banff for your honeymoon or engagement!

12 Romantic Things to do in Banff on your Honeymoon

1. Go canoeing on a lake

In the summertime, nothing could be more romantic than taking in the stunning views around you from a canoe. Around Banff and Lake Louise, there are a few places you can do this with the most popular and beautiful spots being Vermilion Lakes, Lake Moraine, Lake Louise, Lake Minnewanka, and Emerald Lake.

You can either choose to join a canoe or kayaking tour or simply visit one of the lakes where you can rent canoes and kayaks from the edge of the lake.

My Recommendations:

For your own tour, rent kayaks at either Lake Louise or Moraine Lake. These places are iconic and stunningly beautiful – perfect for your honeymoon!

For a group tour, I recommend this Wild Life on the Bow River Canoe tour. Although a group tour, you’ll be able to spot some amazing wildlife while letting the Bow River do most of the paddling!

2. Visit the Banff Upper Hot Springs

I visit just about every hot springs I come by – I just love them. The Banff Upper Hot Springs was no different and on a cold day or night, warming up in the natural mineral water is a great experience – especially with the breathtaking views.

Unfortunately, you won’t have the pool all to yourself (like the picture above) so don’t expect that, however, it’s still a very romantic and relaxing way to spend an hour or so.

Entrance to the hot pools is only $8.75 CAN and includes your locker – not bad price for a Banff activity!

Closures: The Banff Upper Hot Springs closes in mid to late October every year for cleaning for one week. Be sure the check their website for the exact dates each year.

3. Visit Moraine Lake

The beautiful Moraine Lake the morning I proposed to Bailey!

Lake Moraine will always hold a special place in my heart, I mean it’s where I got engaged to the most beautiful girl in the world! But trust me, my opinion isn’t biased and for any newlywed couple, you simply must spend some time gazing out at this stunning alpine lake.

On a cold day, take some hot chocolate down and sip it on the rocks. Or on a hot summer day, enjoy a picnic on the edge of the lake. Regardless of the weather, this is the perfect place to get your first photos as a married couple.

Hot tip: If you want to go for a sunrise (like we did) be sure to arrive at the Moraine Lake car parking lot before 6 am. Although dark, you just need to secure your spot in the parking lot which is very limited.

Closures: Moraine Lake Road is unfortunately not open all year round and closes on October 15th until May 18. This changes yearly so check up to date closure dates online in advance.

Recommended tour: If you don’t have wheels or would prefer a guided tour then this Moraine Lake and Lake Louise guided tour is a great option. You’ll visit both lakes and get the added bonus of a knowledgeable guide!

If you want an even more romantic tour then you can book this evening Lake Louise, Lake Moraine and dinner guided tour.

4. Explore Lake Louise

Lake Louise is truly a stunning lake!

Lake Louise is another one of my all-time favorite lakes in the world (the list is huge.) It’s simply stunning and exploring the lake even just a little is a must-do when visiting Banff!

At Lake Louise, you can sit back and enjoy each other’s company while staring out at the lake! If you’re hungry then consider popping into the Fairmont for a 5-star lunch.

Around the lake there are a few hikes you can do including a quiet walk around the perimeter of the lake. If you’re after something longer then the beautiful hike to the Agnes Tea House is one of the best.

Regardless, just enjoy the views and stunning colors!

Recommendation: You can combine a trip to Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway (below) into one tour and have your guide do all the work. You’ll visit Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Lake Minnewanka and hit a few scenic places on the Icefields Parkway.

5. Drive the Icefields Parkway

The stunning Icefields Parkway near Banff, Alberta

It’s been named one of the top 10 best road trips in the world by National Geographic, and after driving it myself, I totally agree! The entire drive on the Icefields Parkway is simply stunning and an ideal way to spend the day with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with!

The Icefields Parkway runs between Banff and Jasper National Park and along the way, there are plenty of great stops. Some of the best include Bow Lake, Peyto Lake, WaterfowlLlakes, Big Hill and Big Bend, and of course, the Athabasca Glacier.

For more info check out this blog on the best stops on the Icefields Parkway.

Hot tip: If you plan on driving back to Banff then allow a good 4 hours to drive to the Athabasca Glacier and back while stopping at along the way! Also in winter, the glacier tours close and driving the road can become dangerous. Between November 1 and April 1, winter tires are mandatory on this highway.

Recommendation: If you want to do the Athabasca Glacier Ice Explorer and Skywalk you must book your time slot in advance. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for hours to jump on a tour (yeah, that was us).

6. Take a ride on the Banff Gondola

The Banff Gondola takes you to one of the most impressive viewpoints in Banff. But it’s not just about reaching the top, and instead the quiet and very romantic ride to the top is a great way to get some alone time with each other.

Of course, once you do reach the top there’s plenty of exploring to do. Be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife and to walk the entire pathway and viewing deck. To say the least, the views are incredible!

If you’re feeling hungry pop in for some food at the restaurant, or the visit gift shop and buy a souvenir to remember this special week together!

Hot tip: You can book your gondola ticket here in advance and skip the large lines at the ticket booth. Alternatively, you can join this top-rated guided sightseeing tour that includes the gondola, a visit to Lake Minnewanka, Bow Falls and more!

7. Spend sunset at Vermilion Lakes

If you drive to the end of Vermilion Lakes, the reflections are incredible!

Vermilion Lakes is one of the closest attractions to Banff. In fact, you may recognize that mountain above (on the left) as Mt Rundle. Well, Banff sits just below here and from town, Vermilion Lakes is only a 5-minute drive.

The lakes are visited on the Vermilion Lakes Scenic Drive and along the way you can find many different views of the mountains and lakes. However, if you want to see the most beautiful reflections head to the end of the road and wander around. This area is protected from the wind and the mountains here reflect off the water like a mirror!

Hot tip: Go at sunset and enjoy a glass of wine in each other’s arms. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a drink before dinner!

8. Take a scenic flight around the Rockies

I really couldn’t imagine anything more romantic for a newlywed couple on their honeymoon than to take a scenic flight over the Rocky Mountains in Banff or Lake Louise National Park. From the sky, you’ll get the best seat in the house and share an experience together like no other!

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous then consider joining this helicopter tour that includes a short hike to twin falls. Not only will you get to enjoy a scenic flight but also a short walk together to a stunning waterfall!

Hot tip: This tour leaves from just outside Banff National Park on the David Thomson Highway off Icefield Parkway. So I recommend pairing this with your Icefield Parkways drive!

9. Go ice skating on a frozen lake

Banff and Lake Louise get cold in winter. So cold in fact, that many of the small and large lakes in the area completely freeze over making them the perfect place to go ice skating!

The best part is that skating on the lakes is free and you’ll only need to rent your skates (unless you have your own of course).

My recommendation: Go ice skating at Lake Lousie, Banff Highschool, or at the Waldhaus Rink behind the Fairmont Springs in Banff. These are some of the best places in the area!

Most of the activities I’ve mentioned can be done all year round, but for this one, you’re going to need to wait until around mid-December and come before March when the lakes around Banff and Lake Louise are frozen. This is weather dependent so check with the visitor center before skating on any frozen lake!

10. Explore the beautiful Johnston Canyon

The beautiful Johnston Canyon!
The beautiful Johnston Canyon!

Johnston Canyon is a very interesting place to visit no matter the time of year. In fact, if you’ve already been in summer then you still need to go in winter as the experience is completely different.

Of course, in the summer expect running water and gushing waterfalls, but in the winter, the canyon freezes leaving behind frozen waterfalls in what can only be described as a winter wonderland.

Walking along Johnston Canyon is completely free all year round but for a more exciting experience, you can join a winter tour to learn more about the canyon. They’ll also provide you with ice cleats and poles to help with the hike.

If you don’t have wheels or like driving on the mountain roads then the Banff hop on hop off bus tour is a great way to explore the area at your own pace.

Hot tip: There is also a winter night time Johnston Canyon tour that will leave the other visitors behind for a truly magical experience.

11. Take the chair lift up to Mt Norquay

The view from Mt Norquay up the chairlift.

Without a doubt, my favorite view of Banff town was from the top of the Mt Norquay chairlift. From the top, the views of the Bow Valley and surrounding national park are mesmerizing. You can clearly spot the Bow River, Banff town, and of course Mt Rundle (not that it’s hard to see).

At the top, there is a restaurant that serves amazing food, as well as cold and warm drinks with amazing views. Bailey and I enjoyed a romantic lunch paired with local wine and I have to say it’s the most beautiful place I’ve had lunch!

In both the winter and summer, you can take the chairlift up to the restaurant and viewing platform but in winter it seems you’ll need a ski lift pass and only sightseeing passes are sold in summer between June 14th to October 14th. Sightseeing passes cost $37 for adults and $24 for children.

Closures: The chairlift also closes between October 14th and the start of the winter season (see their website for the exact opening date).

Recommendation: If you’re feeling adventurous then join this Via Ferrata tour on Mt Norquay. Via Ferrata means “iron path” and essentially your climbing up the side of a mountain with iron bars. It’s completely safe and I’ve actually done Via Ferrata before in Queenstown, New Zealand.

12. Enjoy a relaxing drive on the Bow Valley Parkway

It’s true that just exploring in and around Banff is beautiful. So, its no surprise we’ve included another relaxing drive to spend a few hours on your Banff honeymoon.

The Bow Valley Parkway is a stunning stretch of road with plenty of worthwhile stops and viewpoints along the way. Some of the most amazing places to stop include Moose Medows, Johnston Canyon, Morant’s Curve, Silverton Falls, Castle Lookout, but among these, you’re sure to find your own favorites. So, grab a coffee and get exploring!

Hot tip: Head off in the morning, not only is the road much quieter but you’re more likely to see wildlife including bears or moose!

Other Amazing Full-day Tours from Banff

We would’ve loved to have done every activity in Banff but unfortunately, that would take a lot of time as there’s simply so much to do!

With that said, here are a few extra things we haven’t done personally but would absolutely love to…and you might too!

Discover Grizzly Bears from Banff – I still have not seen a bear in the wild and I want to so bad! Of course Bailey has, but she grew up around the in the Okanagan. But if you too haven’t seen a wild bear with your own eyes, this would be an amazing tour worth every penny!

2-day Overnight Backcountry Lodge Trip by Horse – If you love horses and nature then this is one tour you simply cannot miss. Imagine exploring the rugged terrain of Banff National Park by horse and then spending the night in a backcountry lodge – unforgettable!

I have done some horse riding in the Okanagan and loved it so I guarantee this would be amazing! If the two-day adventure is too much then this 1-hour Banff horse riding tour is a great alternative.

Snow Shoeing Adventure – There wasn’t quite enough snow around during my visit so I didn’t get to do any snowshoeing, but I sure would love too! This tour is really great value at only $80 and it includes your gondola ticket!

  • Congrats on your engagement! We are thinking about a honeymoon here this summer and this info was very helpful! How many days would you recommend?

    • Hey Jen!

      Thank you we are so excited and are now planning our wedding!

      We spent 3 nights in Banff and really enjoyed our time. I think the perfect stay would be four nights as we were kinda busy! That way you could really explore the area and enjoy some days relaxing around town.

      But, it really depends on your budget, I mean Banff isn’t cheap!

      Are you planning on going anywhere else or just Banff?


  • Congrats on your engagement! We are going this summer for our honeymoon and this post was perfect! Wishing you two a lifetime of happiness

    • Hey Shauna!

      Thanks so much, it means the world!

      We are planning our wedding in Fiji now so we are very excited!

      Congratulations on getting married you will have an amazing time in Banff its such a beautiful and romantic place!

      Good luck to you guys and your future together.

      Please if you have any questions just ask!


  • Hello! I love all your pictures and congrats on your engagement. I was wondering when you two where in Banff for your engagement? My financee and I were considering coming to Banff for our honeymoon. We figured going when the weather was warmer would be best, especially for hiking and other outdoor activities (unfortunately, neither of us ski). Thanks!

    • Hey Allison,

      Thanks so much!

      We were in Banff at the start of October. This was a good time as it was far less busy than in the middle of summer. If you like hiking and want to do summer activities don’t go later than the 1st week of October as some trails (like Lake Moraine) close. Also, the hot springs close and so does a few of the chairlifts.

      My recommendation if you like warmer temps and hiking. Go in July or August. These are the busiest months though so you will need to plan ahead!

      Let us know if you have any other questions!
