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.

This tour was very good, besides just the scenery of everything beautiful around, the tour guides were both very knowledgeable about everything and very pleasant. It was great to see many of the different lakes and sights they had planned as well as had a great little lunch spot. There was a lot of driving but that's the nature of being surrounded by everything beautiful

Wonderful day!

This was a great tour. The bus driver/tour guide from Banff was fantastic. He tried very hard to ensure we had an enjoyable experience. My only negative was that I had booked my stay at the Ramada hotel Downtown because it was in the list of hotels for the departure point for this tour but the bus does NOT pick-up/drop-off from that hotel. I had to walk to the Sandman hotel to catch the bus, which was a little annoying. Other than that, it was a fantastic tour!
