A nickname like the ‘Gem of the Rockies’ has a lot to live up to, but that’s easy for Lake Louise. The imposing chateau looks on as mountains cluster around turquoise waters that you literally have to be seen in order to believe it! Once you’ve closed your mouth and rubbed your eyes, after staring at the incredible scenery that surrounds you, walk the beautiful lakeshore trail, hike out to the Plain of Six Glaciers tea house, or maybe rent a canoe and soak up the scenery by paddle power and explore the lake at your leisure.
Boot up and breathe in the crisp alpine air with the resident Marmots, bears, porcupines and elk. Whether you explore Banff National Park from the road or on the trails, you’ll be left speechless by its endless beauty. With 1600 km of trails, a town full of heritage and some incredible wildlife, you won’t want to leave this mountain wonderland. One of the more popular trails in the park is the Sundance Canyon Trail, a laid-back walk past rolling hills and flowing streams and through narrow canyons. You may choose to ride the gondola to the peak of Sulphur Mountain, or for something really special, take a scenic glacier flight. End your active day with a recharge in Banff’s heavenly hot springs.
