Canadian Rockies Tours Include Banff National Park
Book a Canadian Rockies Tour with Caravan and your vacation includes a visit to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, home to the world famous Banff Cave and Basin Hot Springs.
In 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers were working on the transcontinental railway. They soon made a chance discovery of the Cave and Basin Hot Springs of Sulphur Mountain on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
The alpine village of Banff Alberta is nestled among some of the best-known mountain scenery on Earth. Banff National Park’s majestic snow-capped peaks, glacial lakes, waterfalls and canyons help make it one of the world’s premier destination spots.
Birth of Canada’s Park System
In 1885, the birthplace of Canada’s national park system was established when Banff National Park became Canada’s first (and the world’s third) National Park spanning some 2,564 square miles (6,650 sq. km). Then, in 1984, UNESCO added Banff National Park to its’ list of World Heritage sites.

Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
