“ANOTHER NICE LOCATION.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Very picturesque and well worth finding. We are into Geocaching and searched for a few in this area. Quiet, peaceful, and very beautiful.

“Great views of Mt Rundle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Frozen in winter but nice nevertheless with great views of Mount Rundle including the sun rising behind it if you get up early enough. We also encountered a group of mule deer next to the road.

“Nice little winter drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Took a little detour to see the snowy landscape. Unfortunately didn't see any wildlife, but very beautiful scenery all the same.

“Nice scenic drive or walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Vermillion Lakes are great for those with or without transportation. There is a good chance of spotting some elk and deer. If you keep your eyes open you might be lucky enough to spot a bald eagle or osprey!

“Great Scenic Lakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Vermilion Lakes are found just outside the town of Banff, Alberta in Western Canada. The Lakes can be found easily when exiting Banff by following the signposts.

The Lakes themselves offer a great scenic view of the surrounding mountains as well as the local wildlife. When I visited the lakes there was a female deer at the distant end of the lake, there was also a number of Canadian Loons swimming as well as Wood toads in the marshes. Although this isn't the greatest activity in Banff it is a great place to visit if you are interested in seeing the local Wildlife
