    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Bow Valley Parkway, Banff, Banff National Park, Alberta Canada

    Take the scenic highway on the way to Lake Louise which is great for wildlife spotting with a scenic stop along the way.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Alberta T0L 1E0 Canada

    With four hours of free time at Lake Louise you’ll have plenty of time to explore on your own: borrow the complimentary snowshoes and explore the many trails, wander the shoreline and take in the iconic views, and warm up with a hot drink or a leisurely lunch at the elegant Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel.

    To make the most of your visit, rent a pair of ice skates and skate on the frozen lake – an authentic Canadian experience! Horse drawn sleigh rides run daily along the lakeside trail in traditionally styled sleighs with cozy upholstered seats and blankets to keep you warm.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Our tour guide Raven was very knowledgeable and super kind. We had a great experience and learned lots of historical and interesting facts about Lake Louise, Castle Mountain and Morant’s Curve :) Thanks for the wonderful Experience:)

    We visited in May 2019 and we were lucky enough to have Kelsey as our tour guide. She was very friendly and it was clear that she has extensive knowledge of the area and it’s history. The tour was really informative and the smaller group meant that it was a nice atmosphere. The

    Hi Caitlin, Thank you for joining us on a guided tour to Lake Louise with Kelsey. We always want to spend longer at Lake Louise too! We offer a half day tour that includes 30 minute stops at each lake, or an extended evening tour that includes an earlier dinner and a longer visit (1 hour) at Lake Louise. We're not quite sure which tour you took with us, but we're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed it and Kelsey's company along the way. We'll be sure to pass your comments on to Kelsey, and we hope to see you back again in Banff.

    Delicious hot chocolate. Great tip from our tour guide to visit the stained glass windows. My favourite was the bear! Completed the hike to Fairview Lookout. Was slippery but worth it to see the view. Would recommend hiking shoes instead of casual shoes. 4 hours felt a little

    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and photos from your Discover Lake Louise Tour. We're glad to hear that you liked the stained glass windows too! The hike to Fairview Lookout is a great choice for April and we shared your photo of the view on Facebook because we liked it so much. The lake is just starting to thaw over the past week - would you believe that there's probably only two weeks to go until it's completely clear of ice. We hope to see you back again.

    This was a wonderful tour which took us Dog Sledding in the Lake Louise area and then to Lake Louise where we had free time. The tour was fantastic, and the time allowed at each destination was perfect! Norm, our tour guide, was incredibly insightful, knowledgable and fun. Would

    Hi there, Thank you for joining us on the Lake Louise + Dogsledding Package with Norm. We think this is the perfect full-day tour to Lake Louise and it's one of our most popular package deals (and it can sell out well in advance), and we're glad to hear that you enjoyed it! We hope to see you back in Banff again soon.
