Another way to experience beautiful Lake Louise and Moraine Lake is by water. Canoes are available for rental, making your trip one for the books.
If this does not sound like enough adventure for you, don’t hesitate to bring more excitement to your day by venturing to the rapids of the Kicking Horse River. Here, you can conduct your very own Wild Water Adventure, hurdling through class IV rapids. For even more of an adrenaline rush, you can embark on a Maximum Horsepower trip, with class IV+ rapids that will bring you on an adventure you will never forget. If the larger rapids intimidate you, or you are looking for a family affair, then the Gentle Journey is calling your name—but don’t be fooled, you will still get wet!
Looking for a more relaxed way to the top? Why not soar to the peak in a Lake Louise Gondola. Both traditional enclosed gondola cars or open air chairs bring you to an elevation of 6850 feet in just 14 minutes. Once arrived, you can immerse yourself in panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, and even a glimpse of Lake Louise! Complete your trek by embarking on one of the several simple hikes or partake in an interpretive program where you can learn about the local animals and how they survive. The lucky ones will see this wildlife on their way back down!
