1. Banff: Lake Louise & Moraine Lake Evening Tour with Dinner
Get picked up from your Banff hotel in a modern minibus by a friendly guide. Drive along the scenic, winding Bow Valley Parkway as you keep your eyes peeled for animals such as deer, elk, and bears through this wildlife-rich habitat. Before heading to these famous lakes, stop for a delicious early dinner at the Baker Creek Bistro. This charming restaurant offers authentic Canadian cuisine from locally and regionally sourced ingredients in a warm log cabin ambiance complete with a roaring fireplace. After dinner, continue to Lake Louise, one of the most famous lakes in the Canadian Rockies. With a full hour to explore this stunning mountain lake, choose to take a guided shoreline walk, or simply explore and soak in the views with the Victoria Glacier as the perfect backdrop. Be sure to visit the famous Fairmont Chateau hotel while at Lake Louise, where you can explore this 100-year-old hotel or simply enjoy a drink overlooking the lake. Lastly, head to Moraine Lake, a glacier-fed turquoise gem set in the rugged Valley of the Ten Peaks. With a 30 minute stop, there's plenty of time to wander along the shoreline or walk to the famous viewpoint of the Valley of the Ten Peaks before you return to Banff.
