Escape from crowded streets and concrete buildings when you visit Lake Minnewanka, where Mother Nature will take care of you.
You'll discover it in Banff, which is 180 miles (290 kilometers) out of the provincial capital, Edmonton.
Get comfortable and take it easy after visiting Lake Minnewanka. You can choose from 36 accommodation options that are all within 6 miles (10 kilometers). The Fairmont Banff Springs and Hidden Ridge Resort should provide you with some, if not all, of the comforts of home.
If glamorous facilities aren't a priority, think about some of the budget solutions available. Why not select from one of the Bow View Lodge and the YWCA Banff Hotel?
If you're looking to indulge yourself for a night or two, you'll need to look up the Delta Hotels by Marriott Banff Royal Canadian Lodge. At just 5 miles (8 kilometers) away, it's the only upmarket hotel in the area.
