Banff National Park Fees

     
   
     

Entrance into Banff National Park requires an entry fee. An entry pass purchased at Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho National Parks allows you admission into all of the Canadian Rockies parks. See table of prices below.

Banff National Park Entry Gates

At the Banff National Park entry gates, you can purchase a pass for a specific number of days or opt for an annual pass. You may decide the cost-effectiveness of a daily pass versus an annual pass depending on the number of days you intend to spend during that trip and the following year.

An annual pass is valid in 27 of Canada’s national parks for 365 days from the date of purchase. If you plan on spending 7 or more days in Banff National Park, it may make sense to buy an annual pass. See price schedule below.

Fees

Entry and service fees are charged at most national parks and national historic sites, where revenues are kept to support visitor services and facilities. This means that every time you visit a park or site you are investing in its future — and in a legacy for future generations.

The following definitions apply to entry and service fee categories unless otherwise specified:

Adult: Person 17 to 64 years of age
Senior: Person 65 years of age or over
Youth: Person 6 to 16 years of age
Family/Group: Up to seven people arriving at a national park in a single vehicle or visiting a national historic site together.
School Groups: Students of elementary and secondary schools.


Fees listed are valid from April 1, 2010 to March 31 2011. Please check back on April 1 of each year for new and updated fee information.
An Asterisk (*) indicates a new or changed fee from the previous year. All fees listed include applicable taxes and are subject to change.
For park entrance fees, you will be able to leave and enter the park freely for the term that your pass applies for.
