Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Day Trip from Banff
USD 143.42
Overview
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.

Unpleasant experience.

Long story short, we mistakenly thought it was 8:30 the pick up time and we called Brewster to meet the group somewhere. The operator said he didn't know the coach driver's number nor the coach's plate number, just told us to go to the Fairmont...More

A really worthwhile trip, but quite a few of the significant locations were closed due to road conditions and a prescribed burning. Not seeing these was disappointing, but this is something that is a feature. The on coach team were good and did their best...More

Hello ArctosMac! Thank you for providing us with this amazing feedback. A number of sites in the Banff/YOHO/Jasper National Parks are weather dependent particularly in Spring and Fall and we do offer replacement sites during these closures. We are looking to the lunch at Emerald...More

A highlight of our Canadian Rockies trip

Brewster Sightseeing exceeded the expectations of all three couples. The driver, Mike was outstanding. With 28 years of skill he maneuvered the switchbacks which required driving backward up, and then down a steep mountain enroute to the waterfalls. Wow! Our guide Louie did a marvelous...More
