Lake Louise, Moraine & Yoho

What to Expect

You’ll see some of the best scenery the Canadian Rockies offer; towering mountains, glaciers, surreal coloured lakes and breathtaking waterfalls.

Starting in Banff, Lake Louise or the small town of Field in Yoho, we focus on the Lake Louise area of Banff National Park and the aptly named (in Cree language) Yoho National Park, meaning “awe”.

The highlights include the breathtaking Lake Louise beautifully backdropped by the Victoria Glacier, and the dazzling Moraine Lake surrounded by 10 peaks.

From 2020, mandatory Parks Canada shuttles for the connector service between Lake Louise and Moraine Lake must be booked in advance. Walk-up seat sales are not permitted.

Immediately to the west of Lake Louise is Yoho National Park and the thundering Takakkaw Falls – Canada’s second highest with a spectacular sheer drop. We continue onto Emerald Lake for more amazingly coloured lakes and view the corkscrew Spiral Tunnels, a nation-building section of railway engineering.

An optional extra for those driving toward Lake Louise from Banff is to drive along the Bow Valley Parkway, where wildlife can be spotted, or you can hike the trail to Johnston Canyon.

FAQ

Will I be able to park at Lake Louise & Moraine Lake?

Parking can be challenging at Lake Louise and almost impossible at Moraine Lake in peak summer periods.

In 2020, the Parks Canada shuttle for the connector service between Lake Louise and Moraine Lake must be booked in advance. Walk-up seat sales are not permitted.

Which direction do I have to go?

There is no set direction on this route. You can join anywhere along the route. You do not have to start in Banff or Lake Louise. You can join the route directly from the end of the Icefields Parkway. Or join as you approach the town of Field if arriving in the Rockies from the west.

Does this tour have the same commentary as in the Canadian Rockies tour?

Yes, but the Canadian Rockies tour has extra bonus commentary added as well. If visiting more places than just Lake Louise, like Banff and the Icefields Parkway, the the Canadian Rockies tour is the best option.
