A guide on things to do in in the Calgary and Banff regions of Alberta, Canada.

18 Photos that Will Put You on a Plane to Calgary and Banff| Travel-Break.net | A travel blog guide to things to do in Alberta, CanadaPour some maple syrup on it… eh? If you’re looking for things to do in Banff and Calgary, these photos will have you on the next plane to a mountainous paradise.

An international and domestic favorite, fly into Calgary for architecture and great eats, then road trip out to Banff’s legendary Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Johnston Canyon.

Surprise after surprise, I discovered places that exceeded my expectations, and so many I hadn’t even heard of.

As a lover of the outdoors, I knew to soak up the sun in a hammock, but there’s more to Alberta than the slopes of the Canadian Rockies.

Calgary local Tamara Elliott introduced me to arts, parks, bars and restaurants at the heart of the city.

With so much to do outside and inside, exploring Alberta is not a matter of if I’ll return, but more so… how often!

Things to do in Banff and Calgary, Alberta — as told by photos.

Side note: big thank you to my partner Canada Keep Exploring, the official board of tourism for the invitation to #CaptureCalgary by film and photo. Double thanks to the Calgary and Banff locals who I met through social media: Tamara Elliott of Globe Guide and adventure photographer Jonathan Sinclair. 

1. Get outside.

First and foremost, home of outbound, the Calgary and Banff area boast lakes, mountains, waterfalls and canyons. Consider these …

LAKE LOUISE

Kayak in the summer and ice skate in the winter, Lake Louise is the epicenter of Banff National Park. Pines and peaks frame the Lake Louise Ski Resort, amongst shopping, hikes and drive-up view points.

JOHNSTON CANYON

About a thirty minute walk each way, you can easily reach the lower falls.

VERMILION LAKES

Arguably, one of the most iconic places to catch the sunset or sunrise in Banff National Park, the Vermilion Lakes is just off the highway and a must-stop.

Photography Equipment:

I shoot with a DSLR and an iPhone. Check out these tools to get the best photos on your next trip to Calgary and Banff!

Canon 70D, available via Overstock with a free extra battery + memory card. Canon 24-70 mm lens (standard zoom lens) available on Spring (with warranty) which is great for lifestyle photos. Canon Wide Lens 20 mm which is great for wide landscapes. I mostly take photos of myself by using the Manfrotto tripod; it folds up nicely.

Tips to stay healthy during air travel – Mayo Clinic News Network

If you’ve ever felt sick after traveling on an airplane, you may want to consider some of your behaviors and movements. Where you sit and what you touch on a plane may contribute to disease transmission, according to a recent study.

“There have been some studies that have suggested that because, as people walk up and down the aisles, they may touch the armrest along the aisle. And that could potentially serve as a way of transmitting infection to persons sitting in the aisle seat,” says Dr. Nipunie Rajapakse, a Mayo Clinic pediatric infectious diseases specialist. “Some people have suggested that the window seat may be the safer seat to sit in in terms of risk of transmission of infections.”

Journalists: Broadcast-quality sound bites are in the downloads.

“Some of the dirtiest places on an airplane — or where you’re most likely to pick something up with your hands — have been found to be the seatback tray table, the armrest, the seat belt buckle and, of course, the bathroom on the airplane,” Dr. Rajapakse says. “So avoiding touching those surfaces as much as possible will help to keep you healthy.”

Since touching these surfaces sometimes cannot be avoided, wiping them down with a disinfectant wipe and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer afterward, can decrease your risk of picking up an infection.

The best thing to do when traveling is to wash your hands frequently to prevent illness.

“Many of these infections are spread by respiratory droplets. That means direct exposure to someone who’s coughing or sneezing,” Dr. Rajapakse says. “If these droplets land on a hard surface, you can pick them up and infect yourself if you touch your face, your nose or your mouth.”

To stay healthy during air travel, you should:

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Bring disinfectant wipes.
  • Use hand sanitizer.
  • Bring facial tissues.
  • Ensure your vaccinations are up to date, and get your flu shot in preparation for flu season.
