The tour through Lake Louise and Moraine Lake is the best way to see Banff National Park without having to carry a backpack down a muddy path. The journey with my friends at Jasper Vacations will take you past Vermillion Lakes with the spectacular Mount Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, and Sundance Mountain Ranges above.
As I was moving down the Bow Valley Parkway, I saw plenty of elk and a few coyotes. My guide told me that it’s not rare to see bear on the same route. I’m sure glad I was in a nice air-conditioned bus. Part of the Rockies, but safe from the wild animals.
At Lake Louise, Mount Victoria and the Victoria Glacier are often reflected on the glacial fed waters. Here Jasper Vacations gives visitors 30 minutes to enjoy this magnificent setting. If you are like me, you will want to stay for 3 hours. So be sure to take the camera and get plenty of photos of the Canadian Rockies. You can also be part of history, seeing the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
Finally, the tour takes visitors to Moraine Lake and the Valley of the 10 Peaks. All in all, the tour takes 4 hours. There are 5 daily departures from the town of Banff. Look for Jasper Vacations vans and personal if you have any questions. And don’t forget to tell them that the Mountain Man sent you.
