Departs Daily from Calgary - 6:15 AM

Tour Includes:
* Delicious deli-style lunch at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
* Friendly, knowledgable driver-guides
* Fantastic photo opportunities

Highlights Include:
  • Johnston Canyon - A series of catwalks has been imbedded on the walls of Johnston Canyon, making it easily accessible and one of the most popular attractions in Banff National Park. Johnston Canyon has two main waterfalls - the shorter, but more powerful Lower Falls (which can actually be viewed from inside a small cave!) and the much taller, but less powerful Upper Falls.

  • Lake Louise - Known as the "Jewel of the Canadian Rockies", world-renowned Lake Louise is a premier example of the beauty the Canadian Rockies have to offer. After a delicious deli-style lunch from the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, you can enjoy a leisurely walk around the lake, take the short hike to Lake Agnes and its famous teahouse, or even explore the world-famous Chateau.

  • Moraine Lake - The view of Moraine Lake from the top of its Rockpile Trail is one of the most photographed locations in all of Canada, featuring the impressive mountains that make up the Valley of the Ten Peaks in the background. This view is commonly known as the "Twenty Dollar View" and appeared on the 1969 and 1979 issues of the Canadian $20 bill.

  • Takakkaw Falls - This waterfall is the second-highest in Western Canada and the third highest in the country. Powerful and imposing, this waterfall's name, Takakkaw, is loosely translated from the First Nations Cree language as "it is magnificent".
Ages:
Child: 6 to 12 years. Complimentary for children under 5.
Adult: 13 years and up

Notes:
* In the case that the road to Takakkaw Falls is closed (usually open June to September), an alternate stop at Emerald Lake will be substituted.
