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.
