Hopefully you'll spot some wildlife on your return trip, and then be back at the Mount Royal Hotel for dinner at Brazen. Don't miss a soak in the rooftop hot tubs to mark the end of another incredible day in the Rockies.
Today is about slowing down. Start by heading out to the picturesque Lake Minnewanka — Banff's largest lake. The Lake Minnewanka Cruise takes you places you can’t reach on foot, as guides share stories you won’t hear anywhere else.
Learn about the sacred lands of Indigenous peoples, about artifacts buried on the shores of Lake Minnewanka up to 13,000 years ago and about the nature and wildlife of the Fairholme Range. All the while, you’ll soak in the stunning scenery beyond the shoreline.
When your boat returns to the dock, grab some lunch at the Black Anchor Snack Shop and head to a lakeside picnic table. Spend as much time as you'd like enjoying the view, hiking to Stewart Canyon or even renting a kayak and going for a paddle. You'll wrap up your Banff visit with a cool head, a happy heart and a camera full of memories to cherish.
