Get out in Canada’s crisp mountain air on one of these four iconic hikes in the Banff and Lake Louise areas of Alberta. The Canadian Rockies offer a dramatic backdrop to explore some of North America’s most spectacular hikes, for varying levels and abilities. Trek to classic locations and see spectacular views of Peyto Lake's otherworldly blue hues. Share your passion for the mountains with the local, enthusiastic guides. Explore the Larch Valley, Stanley Glacier, Lake Agnes or the Plain of Six Glaciers.

Your full-day hiking tour begins with a convenient pickup. Meet your guide, double-knot your laces and set off into the wilderness with your optional hiking poles in tow. Learn fascinating interpretive facts about the area along the way and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch (see Itinerary section below for menu). At the end of your hike, you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel.

Hiking Schedule

Sunday - Lake Agnes
Journey to one of the most hiked trails in the Canadian Rockies, known for its spectacular trail and views of the surrounding peaks and dazzling Peyto Lake. Stop at a scenic teahouse to refuel before the hike back down. Outdoor photography buffs will love this moderate 4-hour hike.
Return Distance: 4.5 miles (7 km)
Elevation: 1,240 feet (367 meters)

Monday and Saturday - Larch Valley
Beginning from the Valley of Ten Peaks at Moraine Lake, this scenic trail is not for the faint of heart, as there are sometimes bears in the area. But the brave are rewarded with unforgettable views on the ascent through the Larch Forest, to Sentinel Pass. Adventurous nature lovers will like this moderate 5-hour climb.
Return Distance: 5.6 miles (9 km)
Elevation: 1,500 feet (465 meters)

Tuesday and Thursday - Stanley Glacier
This trail takes you through the regrowth of the tragic 1960s and 2003 fires, so you can see new life emerging in this once blackened forest. See stunning views of Stanley Glacier sliding down the side of Mt Stanley as well as Peyto Lake. This is a great hike for those seeking a relatively easy 4-hour stroll through beautiful scenery.
Return Distance: 5.25 miles (8.4 km)
Elevation: 1,285 feet (395 meters)

Wednesday and Friday - Plain of Six Glaciers
Begin on the shores of picturesque Lake Louise, then rise up a mountain for breathtaking views of the emerald lake from above and surrounding valleys and peaks, and in the distance, Peyto Lake. Stop at the teahouse for cakes and tea (own expense). People wanting a challenge with rewarding views will dig this moderate 4-hour hike.
Return Distance: 6.6 miles (10.6 km)
Elevation: 1,110 feet (340 meters)

Jeff, the tour guide, was excellent and his knowledge which passed on made the hike even better. The hike was not rushed but did not go slow either- just right!
