Go when it is snowy - scenery beyond belief, no cars
We went to Lake Louise on TCH first and took this scenic route on our way back to Banff. We were lucky and saw 2 lynx. The scenery is also very nice.
Recommended alternative route between Banff and Lake Louise. I want to do it the opposite way on my next visit there.
We saw Elk behind the fences along the highway; our weather was perfect - that helped a lot!
Took a drive from Banff to Lake Louise in the winter. Saw a black wolf, deer and elk. Wonderful time in the sun
this was a nice drive for a break from the trans-Canada highway, stopped and checked out a few sights along the way, watch out for wildlife and cyclists
Slower paced and lovely views and scenery, Great opportunity to see wildlife and interesting spots along the way
