“Vermillion Lakes in Banff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The three Vermillion Lakes just outside of Banff are a long walk, or a very easy drive from Banff City Center. As with most scenery, a late afternoon visit is best for photos. This is also an excellent place to potentially see wildlife, as it is a feeding area.

“Vermillion Lakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Vermillion Lakes are located just outside of Banff. There is a dead-end road that is popular with photographers, birders, cyclists, walkers, and just folks who want to see beauty.

“Great Reflections at Sunset”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Happened to be driving by close to sunset after a day in the Lake Louise area. The water was very smooth which provided a beautful, perfectly clear reflection of the mountains. Great way to end the day!

walk, bike or drive through this serene 5km of small lakes. Sit by the lake on the benches and listen to the silence.
