Banff National Park, Canada
The Banff National Park is a picture-perfect natural playground, high up in the Rocky Mountains, filled with jagged peaks, lush forests and impossibly blue lakes.

Here, the morning mist lasts most of the day, continuously filtering through this dense, tropical jungle. Standing amongst primitive trees in the swirling mist feels like you’ve stepped back into the land of the dinosaurs.
