Hiking in Lake Louise

SUMMER

Take a guided trek of Banff National Park’s famed hiking trails. Venture up to an alpine lake, stopping in at a historical teahouse for lunch. Photograph browsing bears, big horn sheep and mountain goats, and learn all about their natural environment at a museum. Canoe around Lake Louise, cycle the Icefields Parkway or join a high-adrenalin whitewater rafting tour. Summer is the prime time for outside Rocky Mountain activities all just outside our door.

ROCKIES SUMMER GETAWAY

FALL

Autumn road trips through the Canadian Rockies are spectacular and crowds are few. Take advantage of the season and fall colors painting the iconic landscape. Sightsee with an e-bike or join a wildlife safari. Focus on wellness and treat yourself to a spa weekend. Go out on the town in Banff and taste locavore mountain fare at the Chateau’s sophisticated dining venues. Perfect the art of doing nothing on the patio and soak in the inspiring natural surroundings.

Or just relax and unwind at the resort, and watch sky glow orange and pink as it sets behind the glacier.
