Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Day Trip from Calgary

Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Day Trip from Calgary

Discover the incredible mountain lakes and postcard-perfect waterfalls that carve their way through Banff and Yoho National Park on this day trip from Calgary. This day-long trip offers the perfect opportunity to explore these two parks' world-famous waterfalls and many alpine lakes.

Depart from Calgary between 5:50 and 6:10am from select Calgary hotels, driving across the wide-open prairie as the mountains of Banff loom ever-larger in your field of view. Arrive in Banff, traveling along the Bow Valley Parkway towards the fast-moving stream of Johnston Canyon, where you'll take a mid-morning stroll along the river bank.

Next stop for a short lunch before heading to Victoria Glacier and the iconic Lake Louise. Take in the incredible view from what just might be the world's most spectacular lakeside view, then continue inside the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, the famous resort that lines the lakeshore. Head next to nearby Moraine Lake, offering another stunning vista frequently complemented by bright red canoes and turquoise-blue water. 

Proceed next to Yoho National Park, located just over the border from Alberta in British Columbia, crossing the Great Divide via Kicking Horse Pass. Stop momentarily at the Spiral Tunnels before enjoying a stroll up to the towering Takkakaw Falls. Finish your exploration with a return trip by coach to Calgary for a drop-off at your original departure point.

Great tour with 5-6 beautiful photo stops. It's a long day 15 hours but well worth it for the beautiful sights and drive. Tour was not rushed and well guided.

I was in Calgary with my daughter's family..........took a day by myself to go on this tour and had a wonderful experience! I'm an active lady in my 70's and had no trouble at all getting around, walking, and thoroughly enjoying all the stops on this tour. The tour guide was very helpful and informative along the way. Good memories!

The ?Australian?New Zealander tour guide was excellent. Only slight fault. He would underestimate walking times to various spots. Otherwise he was excellent. He was also a skilful driver.
We were completely satisfied with our tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Excellent trip, a very good weather helped indeed, but beside the packed schedule with many lakes and waterfalls visited and of course the spectacular views that we enjoyed all the time, I need to make a special mention of the star of the day, the driver Bob, who made the excursion beyond expectation with his knowledge and wits. Entertainment was complete. We highly recommend this trip to anyone interested to spend a day surrounded by the beauty of nature.

This tour ticked all the boxes for me! I had been to this part of the world before but went again because Lake Louise is just so stunning I had to see it again! This tour took me to other places I hadn't been to before and gave me ample time at the ones I had, to simply soak in the views. Would I do this tour again? Yes! So worth it, plus I had time in Banff at the end of the tour while waiting for the bus into Calgary, that alone was worth it for me!
