Stunning Views Right Outside of Town
Vermillion Lakes are an incredible view right outside the town of Banff. If you're staying in Banff town, make sure to catch sunrise here once or twice. The views are unforgettable.
Awesome series of lakes!
Vermillion Lakes is an awesome series of lakes that is worth visiting, especially if you're into photography. There is a hot spring located at the third lake and be sure to check out the surrounding meadows for grazing elk!
