The guided tour includes:
Head high up into the Canadian Rockies and cross the Continental Divide through Kicking Horse Pass on a day of Alberta travel on which you'll see some of the most beautiful lakes in North America. After lunch you'll have the opportunity to visit lovely Moraine Lake, one of the most photographed spots in all of Canada, located in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. This glacially fed lake reflects the awe-inspiring beauty that prompted explorer Walter Wilcox, who named it Moraine Lake after the moraine, or rock pile, deposited by the Wenkchemna Glacier, to write “no scene had ever given me an equal impression of inspiring solitude and rugged grandeur,” adding that his time spent contemplating the view was the happiest half-hour of his life. Arrive at your historic chateau-style resort hotel on the edge of Lake Louise overlooking Victoria Glacier in Banff National Park, where you'll enjoy lake-view accommodations during your two-night stay; have dinner at the hotel tonight.
Today is a day for discovering the magnificent wonders of nature at Lake Louise. Join our naturalist guide this morning for a guided walk along the shores of the lovely lake, and discover some of the secrets behind the lake's allure. The remainder of the day is free at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise to spend as you wish, enjoying the many outdoor activities at the resort (some at additional charge) or indoor amenities such as the tranquil oasis at The Spa at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
Your accommodations for the next two nights are equally impressive. The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is nestled on the shores of Lac Beauvert on an elk-populated, lushly wooded 900 acres of pristine wilderness.
Travel back to Calgary (approximately 80 miles). Tour ends: 10:00am at Calgary International Airport.
Your tour may be at an end but your adventure doesn't have to finish here. Perhaps you may want to extend your stay and head to Vancouver and Vancouver Island for some sightseeing and exploration.
