Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Day Trip from Banff

Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Day Trip from Banff

This full-day tour of Banff National Park is the perfect way to visit some of the Canadian Rockies’ greatest hits, from Victoria Glacier to Moraine Lake to what is perhaps the most postcard-perfect lake in Banff — Emerald Lake.

Start your day with hotel pickup in Banff, and proceed on a short drive up to the park’s famous Bow Valley Parkway, a scenic route that is often frequented by local wildlife like elk, deer and more than 200 species of birds.

Back on the coach, you’ll continue to Emerald Lake, an emerald-colored lake tucked between a series of mountain peaks below Victoria Glacier. Stop for a quick lunch here at the lake before visiting nearby Moraine Lake, another amazing alpine sight, as well as the Valley of the Ten Peaks.

Moving on, head over the Great Divide and into Yoho National Park, via the picturesque Kicking Horse Pass, for a stop at the Spiral Tunnels. Then finish your sightseeing at magnificent Takkakaw Falls before heading back to Banff in the late afternoon.

The lakes are beautiful. The waterfall was long but nothing after seeing Niagara! Seeing a chipmunk on the path was great. The snow on the Rockies made the trip even more picturesque. Beautiful country side.

Wonderful tour....Worth Every Penny!!!

We were only in town a few days and were hesitant about blocking out a full day for a tour. We are so very glad we did...... Our tour guides, Alan and Jade, were jewels. Extremely knowledgeable and wiling to share their knowledge. Our day started out questionable, due to the weather. Alan took it upon himself to flip the stops so that we had the best opportunity to view the mountains/lakes. The change in schedule worked out extremely well. We were able to see much more of the area and come to appreciate it more than if we had tried to explore on our own. If we find ourselves in the area again, we would definitely use Brewster's again.
