Banff and Lake Louise Fall Colours Tour

Where: Banff, Alberta

The fall is an incredible time for sightseeing and viewing wildlife in Banff National Park. During the 5-hour guided Banff and Lake Louise Fall Colours Tour you’ll get to see a few of Banff’s highlights as well as spend an hour at Lake Louise for short walks and exploring on your own.

A majestic place.

This tour provides you with the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beauty and grandeur of Banff and Lake Louise at a colourful time of year. As foliage color changes and the first hints of winter begin to appear, there is tremendous activity within the local elk population because of their rutting season.

As the tour moves from Banff to Lake Louise and back your guide will do their best to point out local wildlife and explain what its like living in a national park with animals that, sometimes, are literally on your doorstep.
