Moraine Lake & Larch Valley - 1 Day

A Must-Do Hike In the Lake Louise Area


The Larch Valley, Moraine Lake and Valley of The 10 Peaks are some of the most iconic vistas in Banff National Park and home to some of the areas most popular Day Hiking destinations. Our Guided Hikes begin in Lake Louise each morning, where after meeting, we make the trip up to Moraine Lake where the hiking begins. Walk the shores of Moraine Lake for a short distance before begining the ascent into the Larch Valley where stunning views of The Valley of the 10 Peaks begin to open up as you pass treeline. If you only have 1 day in the Lake Louise area, this is a contender for one of the most scenic areas in Banff National Park. 


Hikers should expect this Guided Day Hike to take between 5-7 hours, a little more than 700m of elevation gain and a 12km round trip. Enjoy a tasty lunch provided for you provided by some of our favourite local cafe's in the Lake Louise area, and check out one of the classic day hiking ascents in the Lake Louise area with our Guides this summer season!
