Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Day Trip from Banff
See the best that Banff National Park and the surrounding wilderness have to offer — including beautiful Emerald Lake, stunning Moraine Lake and towering Takkakaw Falls — on this full-day guided coach tour.  Over the course of 9.5 hours, you’ll discover some of the most awe-inspiring natural scenery of the Canadian Rockies, with time to spot some of the area’s diverse wildlife, plus enjoy lunch and round-trip transport from your Banff hotel.
What to Expect
This full-day tour of Banff National Park is the perfect way to visit some of the Canadian Rockies’ greatest hits, from Victoria Glacier to Moraine Lake to what is perhaps the most postcard-perfect lake in Banff — Emerald Lake.

Start your day with hotel pickup in Banff, and proceed on a short drive up to the park’s famous Bow Valley Parkway, a scenic route that is often frequented by local wildlife like elk, deer and more than 200 species of birds.

Back on the coach, you’ll continue to Emerald Lake, an emerald-colored lake tucked between a series of mountain peaks below Victoria Glacier. Stop for a quick lunch here at the lake before visiting nearby Moraine Lake, another amazing alpine sight, as well as the Valley of the Ten Peaks.

Moving on, head over the Great Divide and into Yoho National Park, via the picturesque Kicking Horse Pass, for a stop at the Spiral Tunnels. Then finish your sightseeing at magnificent Takkakaw Falls before heading back to Banff in the late afternoon.

The BEST Tour of the Canadian Rockies

I mean what I said that this was the BEST tour to see and experience the Canadian Rockies. A full day of touring the mountain lakes and waterfalls was all worth it and was made even more interesting by our driver, Mike and our guide...More

I don't know if it goes in April- if you go to their site they should have operating days.

Yes, for most there is plenty of time. My daughter is an avid photographer and wished she had more time, but for the most part it was enough.
