Lake Louise & Yoho N.P & Moraine Lake 1-Day Tour from Calgary or Banff

7 reviews
Skirt the slopes of the Continental Divide as you explore Yoho National Park and beyond with an experienced local guide. Spend time meandering along the shores of Moraine Lake's opalescent waters and examine the natural span of a river-carved bridge created over thousands of years. <br><br>From a central meeting location in Calgary, ride out of town with your guide as you head toward the evergreen forest and granite peaks of Yoho National Park. Look for moose, bear, and elk that call this stunning landscape home, and make a stop at Lake Louise to snap photos of its turquoise waters, just steps away from Banff's charming downtown.<br><br>Find out how railway engineers overcame the Continental Divide's steep terrain with a visit to the serpentine Sprial Tunnels, see where the Kicking Horse River punched through rock to create a natural bridge, and fill your camera with postcard-worthy shots of Moraine Lake's brilliant color before you return to your ride and catch a lift back to Calgary.

It is nice little hike to see the glacier . It is not really hard or long but if you are in a bad shape be prepared to get tired. Make sure to bring camera , bottle of water and very comfortable shoes ! The view is sure amazing and worth the hike .

If you are looking at Lake Louise, you are looking at Victoria Glacier on the mountains behind the lake. Its melting runoff feeds Lake Louise, appropriately, as Queen Victoria was the mother of HRH Princess Louise. This glacier has retreated a lot in the last 20 years.

My husband and I, with 51 other seniors stopped at Lake Louise while touring the Canadian Rockies. We took beautiful pictures of the glacier as well as of the spectacular Lake Louise. We toured the Fairmont Chateau Louise and enjoyed a nice lunch there. This was another "beauty" of a stop.

Tshirts changed to fleeces but sun glasses stay put. Great experience to see melting ice and avalanches at the same time. surreal to think you are walking on ice that may not be there tomorrow!

When visiting Lake Louise and looking out over the lake, make sure you look up to see what remains of Victoria Glacier. The views are spectacular. While we were visiting the lake was still frozen and the mountains were covered in snow. Just a magical place.
