With not one, but two boardwalks, Banff’s Cave and Basin Natural Historic Site is a must-visit. Here, you can wander the upper boardwalk above the bathing pavilion and peek inside the cave vent, or the lower boardwalk, which will take you through a wetland with birds and fish.

Where: 311 Cave Ave, Banff, AB
