"Get up to Banff and Lake..." Canada Favorite Tip by Weston01

Canada General: 371 reviews and 297 photos

Favorite thing: Get up to Banff and Lake Louise....the mountains, the lake... unforgettable!!! Get out and Whitewater Raft.

Fondest memory: We had a short time to stay and asked our Rafting guide about some good hiking trails. The next afternoon, on his advice, we hit the trail. It kept going...and going...and going. We were in NO WAY prepared for that. But, man, was it worth it! It was a get to the top of this mountain and to see for MILES. Then to discover the most amazing lake...the bluest of blues...crystal clear...with the surrounding peaks perfectly reflected. Only another 1/4 mile further and another lake was just at the treeline. Such an experience. Definitely worth seeing something that most won't take the time or energy to!!
