Wish you were here? So do we, Moraine Lake is looking incredible!

At this time of year, the parking lot for Moraine Lake often fills up before sunrise, and road access is closed off when the lot is full. Save yourself the hassle, and join us on a daily morning or afternoon tour of both Lake Louise and Moraine Lake (see link in bio for tour information).

With sweeping views of Mount Rundle, Two Jack Lake is one of our favourite lakes for sunrise, sunset or any time of day! 

We often stop here on our morning Banff sightseeing tours, and on many of our private Banff tours. Have you visited this picturesque lake?

During the summer months we offer four different guided hikes in Banff and Kootenay National Parks, but one of our absolute favourites is the Plain of Six Glaciers Trail at Lake Louise.

Starting from the Lake Louise shoreline, this moderate hike ascends up an ancient glacial valley with stunning glacier views. As you get higher, the colour of the lake becomes even more stunning and the crowds begin to disappear on our way to the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse.

Want to join us on a small group guided hike? Our Plain of Six Glaciers hikes depart on  Wednesdays and Fridays, or join us on other hikes to Consolation Lakes, Larch Valley or Stanley Glacier. See link in bio for more details on our website.

One of our favourite local waterfalls, did you know that Bow Falls was featured in the 1954 Marilyn Munroe move, "River of No Return"?

You can learn more about this iconic Banff spot for yourself on our morning sightseeing tour.

Did you know that we offer Banff's only wildlife tour every evening from spring to fall? We never know what animals we may be lucky enough to spot each night, but our guides know the best places!

"Eli brought us to amazing views that we would not have seen on our own.  We saw elk in several places, including two calves with its mom. He also pulled over for us to enjoy a surprise grizzly bear after the tour was over as he brought us back to the hotel."
