Sulphur Mountain Gondola (Optional), Banff Town, Lake Minnewanka and optional Lake Cruise(closed for the season from Oct 12th), Bow Falls, Surprise Corner, Hoodoos.*

Scope out the exhilarating scenery of Lake with Mount Inglismaldie and Fairholme range at Banff as you explore this rugged slice of Alberta with an experienced guide. Enjoy some leisure time in city centre Banff; snap photos of Lake Minnewanka - Mountain ridges stretch as far as the eye can see, eventually blurring into a blissful cascade of colours; indulging with the sweeping views from Surprise Corner.

Join your guide in city centre Calgary or Banff town, where you can hop aboard a comfortable coach and set off towards the evergreen forests of Canada's oldest national park. Start your day with rolling by the steep slopes of Sulphur Mountain for the chance to take a Gondola (optional)ride to the summit's sweeping viewpoints. In Banff town, consider grabbing lunch at a small cafe or look for a new piece of gear in a shop catering to outdoor adventurers.

In the afternoon, visit Lake Minnewanka (approx. 1 hour) to see the Rocky Mountains from a new perspective while touring beautiful Lake Minnewanka. Across the lake, the mountains stand stark and impressive against the sky.

(Optional) Lake Minnewanka Cruise, explore the largest glacier fed lake in Banff National Park on this magnificent cruise that introduces the rugged paradise richly steeped in history, native folklore and geology (approx. 1 hour *closed for the season from Oct 12th).

Fill your camera with misty shots of the tumbling rapids at Bow Falls, capture panoramic images of city centre Banff framed against a backdrop of craggy peaks from the Surprise Corner lookout, and keep your eyes peeled for the monolithic silhouette of glacier-carved Hoodoos as you head out of town and back to Calgary.
