3 Days In Banff National Park
Admittedly 3 days in Banff National Park, regardless of the time of year, is not enough to see and do everything. Still, if you are ok with jam-packing your days, this itinerary will allow you to see some really cool things, get those iconic pictures and will give you enough of a taste to plan a return trip.
Morning: Lakeshore Stroll
Afternoon: Lake front Après
Evening: Dinner at The Station Restaurant in Lake Louise village
One of the simplest things to do in Lake Louise, no matter the time of year, is to take a stroll to the back of the lake. This family-friendly, easy trail, takes you along the shore allowing you to discover some of the forest, wildflowers, birds and other wildlife that live here as well as the famous scenery of the towering Fairview Mountain on the other side of the Lake Louise. At the far end, you’ll see a milky creek, full of the rock flour, that gives the lake its magical turquoise color.
After a quick rest from your morning stroll, join us on the Lakefront Terrace for some fun and games, our resort activities team have put together a schedule for you to enjoy with our favourite tipples. Whether you are bingo-mad or a trivia queen an afternoon out on the terrace is the perfect place to regroup and tell the tales of your morning adventure.
For dinner, head down into the village of Lake Louise and take a step back in time at The Station Restaurant. This used to be a bustling train stop and is now a cozy place to enjoy a relaxing meal. This unique venue offers vintage rail cars, landscaped gardens (in summer of course!) and a turn of the century historic log station.
