It's really not the holiday season until you experience Christmas at the Castle in Banff at the most stunning hotel you've ever seen.

The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel absolutely explodes with holiday cheer every year and it will make you feel like you're the star of a Hallmark holiday special. 

Not only will the castle-like hotel be decked out in lights, giant Christmas trees, and all the decorations you could imagine, but there are also a ton of spirit-filled activities happening.

It's important to note that access to the hotel will be exclusively available to hotel guests after 5 p.m. from December 18 to January 2. So, you're welcome to pop by in the daytime or on any other day. 

More events will be added as the holidays draw nearer, so be sure to check out the calendar before you go. 

There are campfires, stargazing sessions, and all the most romantic activities you can imagine. 

The Banff Springs is also filled with amazing restaurants, cafes, and lounges. So, even if you just want to check out the stunning decorations then grab a drink, it will be totally magical. 

Keep your eyes open for more details and be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor when you see it.
