Chimani Launches New App for Banff National Park for Canada’s 150th Birthday

Portland, Maine – Chimani, Inc., announced today the launch of its latest mobile travel app, a guide to Banff National Park, Canada’s most popular national park. The Banff National Park app by Chimani is available for free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

8b8d2be3-4a85-4a29-bb3e-eb17dda5362fThis latest app by Chimani comes in time for the kick off to Canada’s 150th Anniversary celebration set to take place in 2017; during which all of Canada’s national parks will be free to visitors. The Banff National Park app by Chimani provides users with the ultimate mobile tool for planning a trip to the popular park in Alberta and enjoying the various attractions in and around the park. The app joins an existing suite of more than 60 free U.S. National Parks, and one UK park app offered by the Portland, Maine-based company.

“After the huge success of our first international park app launch with Lake District National Park in the UK last month, we were eager to launch our first Canadian park app in sync with the country’s 150th birthday,” said Kerry Gallivan, Chimani’s CEO. “Banff is a stunning park with lakes and mountains that rival the beauty of any national park in the world. With over 3.2 million visitors in 2015, we expect it to be a top travel destination in 2017.”

The Banff National Park app by Chimani boasts rich, detailed information on the park, including:

  •      interactive guides and maps to unique points of interest
    ●      GPS-enabled maps that work without a cell or Wi-Fi connection
    ●      information on lodging, hiking trails, attractions, and other activities
    ●      ability to check-in and save visits to points of interest in the park
    ●      a photo gallery with many high-quality images

“With our own national park system shattering its visitation records this year in its Centennial, it’s very likely that Parks Canada will see similar enthusiasm toward its own parks next year. We hope that our free mobile app guide will help visitors navigate the park safely; reducing congestion, and improving the park experience,” said Gallivan.
