banff without a car

I'm thinking about buying a last min ticket to Alberta and heading to Banff. Probably stay 3-4 days in Banff but wondering if its worth it without a car. Will I be able to travel to different sites/hikes without a car

    There is a ton of busses so you won’t have any issues. In fact you are no longer allowed to drive to the lake pictured, bus only. The place is expensive as all hell though, and without a car I’d definitely wait till summer.

      you think it better to skip Banff? I want to buy a ticket to Calgary this week. Why only go during the summer?

        You can’t really do anything in the Rockies without passing through Banff. Everything in the whole area is extremely expensive. It caters for tourists so you can get a bud anywhere you want. There is even rail. I hired a car though.

        Outside of summer you have lots of things closed as the weather conditions make it unsafe for the hordes of idiot normies they get visiting. In summer there is no snow and ice outside of mountain tops.

        Calgary itself is boring, don’t spend too much time there

    You better bring quality outdoor gear and be prepared to endure some seriously nasty weather without the option of indoor lodging. Choose propane, not butane! Having your own car means heat on demand, impermeable shelter from the wind, and a place to sleep out of the weather if need be. It is a helluva lot more than just a machine to get you from A to B.

        Butane boils at 30 F, so you won't be able to cook with it if temps dip below freeezing. Propane boils at -44 F, so it works fine in all but the most extreme arctic conditions.

        you are fricking dumb, holy shit

        stop talking to the mirror, it's not healthy

    You could do it and get by, but it would be a stunted experience compared to having a car. IMO travelling literally anywhere in north america warrants renting a car. Almost every city on this entire continent was designed around the automobile, and if you've got one or can rent one it makes the freedom and vast distances between things much easier to overcome the emptiness factor. But that's more of a general statement than specifically talking about banff. Go to the Banff international hostel and booze it up in town, then take a bus to do some hikes and swims in the glacier lakes.
