    Was originally scheduled Friday but because of zero visibility, staff was kind enough to suggest and let us come back the next day and even gave us a discount. Great experience! Great customer service! Highly recommended!

    Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks is breathtaking and one of the top spots in Canadian Rockies. Definitely, walk up the Rockpile for the best views. A walk along the lakeside trail is also special. Unless you go well into the low season, you'll have to take either the park shuttle or a private one.

    The Icefields Parkway is one of the most spectacular drives I have experienced. Glacier fed lakes and alpine vistas around every curve. Take your time, relax, and soak in the beauty. We made lots of stops to take it all in including a photo or two.

    Along with Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, Peyto Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Banff. There is a short trail with a few ups and downs to get to the viewing platform, but it is well worth the effort.

    Unexpected stop here but was really nice walk by the river and falls. Unfortunately the upper falls were closed so limited how far we could go.

    Unbelievable scenery, wonderful views from all around the lake! Clean, fresh air, and a simply beautiful spot to either watch the world go by or hike around. A must visit for anyone in the area. The best time to go would be at sunrise where you can watch the majestic colours emerging from behind the mountains and then reflecting in the waters, a truly magical thing to do!

    We loved our stay in Banff National Park. The beauty is mesmerizing. We stayed 4 nights and we could have stayed much longer. It is relaxing and a perfect commune with nature.

    Fantastic walk… but wear walking boots. It starts off gently alongside Lake Louise but does increase gradient steadily although not as steep as the alternative tea house walk. When you get to the cute tea house I would recommend pushing onwards up to the viewing place which is quite a lot extra but so worth it! The walk back down is very slippy as on loose moraine. You can see Piku if you look very carefully. Reward yourself with a delicious cake at the tea house ( compost toilets also available). If you have time it’s possible to go along to Lake Agnes and that tea house rather than retrace your steps. Best walk we did!!
