Even when you’ve seen pho­tos of the snow-cap­ped peaks, crys­tal-blue lakes, e towe­ring ever­greens, it still doesn’t pre­pare you for being up close and per­so­nal with these ico­nic moun­tains. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Rocky Moun­tains, manter uma segunda casa aqui, or just come for an exten­ded visit, você está, bem, lucky.

Loca­ted inside Banff Natio­nal Park, a cidade de Banff tem cerca de 7,500 year-round resi­dents, more than half of whom work in a tou­rism-rela­ted occu­pa­tion. Sobre 25 kilo­me­ters (15 milha) to the sou­theast is the town of Can­more. Because hou­sing within the town of Banff is res­tric­ted due to its park loca­tion, many people wor­king in, or regu­lar­ly visi­ting, the Banff area are choo­sing Can­more as their base.
