Mountain Lakes & Waterfalls Tour

Kayaks at Emerald Lake

Discover the rugged beauty of Banff and Yoho National Parks and other spectacular natural landmarks on this guided coach tour of the Rocky Mountains. Enjoy hiking or simply appreciate the beautiful mountain scenery.

The first stop is at Johnston Canyon where you have sufficient time to take a short nature walk to the lower falls. Continue to Moraine Lake and Lake Louise, often known as the "Jewel of the Rockies". Both lakes are a stunning turquoise colour and are completely surrounded by towering glacier-capped mountains.

A short distance from Lake Louise you will cross the Great Divide and enter Yoho National Park. Here you will visit Takakkaw Falls (the highest in the Canadian Rockies), Kicking Horse Pass, Emerald Lake and the Natural Rock Bridge that spans the Kicking Horse River. The tour is approximately 9.5 hours in duration.
