If the east has Tunnel Mountain, the west of Banff has the Vermilion Lakes. Three rivers from the Bow Valley come together and form this spectacular body of water just outside of Banff. For any wildlife, photography enthusiast, the Vermilion Lakes is a perfect setting. The only possible downside here is that since it’s located along the highway, so it’s not as tranquil as you would imagine it to be. Nonetheless, it’s still the best place to spot some Canadian Rockies wildlife.
