If a holiday to you is more action, adventure and natural beauty than sitting indoors – Banff is the spot. It’s the epic national park you’ve seen in countless travel photos and plenty of blogs have probably told you to go many times before. It’s paradise for hiking and skiing, but also just a perfect place to unwind with a great glass of wine staring off into the stunning wilderness.

The whole “getting there” part is easier than ever right now, thanks to seriously competitive flight deals from quite a few East Coast US cities under $300 round trip. And on major airlines too!

Calgary is a great city on its own, but it’s an inimitable gateway to adventure travel. Banff, Lake Louise and the surrounding areas are some of the most beautiful scenery you’ll find anywhere on earth, and can be directly compared to total wanderlust areas like Queenstown in New Zealand.

Delta, WestJet, Alaska and Air Canada are all in right now with fares from five east coast US cities under $300 round trip, including: New York, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore and Atlanta.

The Dates You Can Travel

These awesome flight deals are available from late August through Mid December of 2019, and then again in January and February of 2020. Basically, you got time to work with here either for a semi spontaneous end of summer getaway, or a plan and save trip for 2020.

Fortunately, these deals mostly allow for even short weekend stays, so if you want to turn a long weekend into something special, these deals allow you to do that. At the same time, you can stay much longer as well.

Booking shouldn’t be a buzzkill. With that in mind, we made links from each city to Calgary, so that you can just click, play with dates, book and enjoy. Here are the best round trip deals to all the good stuff in Banff, Lake Louise and Calgary, like…

Just FYI, don’t forget that as long as you’re at least 7 days away from travel – which all these deals would be – you’ve got 24 hours to cancel risk free if your plans change. Whenever good deals like this pop up, it’s generally best to firm up dates as best you can and then book quickly, rather than mull it over for days only to find out they’re gone!

  1. Bizarrely, Gilbert, this deal has been around for years — at least, from my experience.

    I am not going to provide a link to any articles of mine this time; but I paid exactly the same price for exactly the same itinerary on exactly the same airlines for my trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains between Atlanta and Calgary in 2017.

    1. I’m very happy for you, but I’m also happy to highlight any fare worth booking, whether or not it has or has not once existed.

    1. I got no beef with you Mr. Cohen, you’re one of my faves. I just didn’t quite understand where you were coming from with your comment. It seemed like a “this is nothing new, not worth writing about”.

  2. Stayed Lake Louise first time this last winter (through Calgary) at the Fairmont. Pretty magical location. The Alaska CC is always useful with the BOGO (for $122.00 extra) certs… in any case going to try Jasper through Edmonton this July. Nice post, Thanks.
