    We specialize in personalized small-group tours.  Why? Because we believe that this style of travel offers the best way for people to truly appreciate the culture, history and stories behind the Canadian Rockies.

    We’ve been operating with this philosophy since we first opened our doors in 1998.

    Although we’ve grown over the years, our goal remains the same: helping travellers get a memorable, one-of-a-kind experience while visiting Banff.

    • Lake Louise & Moraine Lake, Banff

    See two of the world’s most beautiful lakes including iconic Lake Louise – famous for its jewel-like water nestled between rugged peaks.

    These stunning alpine lakes look too beautiful to be real. On this sightseeing tour you will visit the “Jewel of the Canadian Rockies”, Lake Louise, and the world renowned Moraine Lake, both of which are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of their priceless natural beauty. They’ll stop you in your tracks in awe.

    Wander the shoreline at Lake Louise and see the Victoria Glacier and the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel, and then snap some shots of Moraine Lake in the beautiful Valley Of The Ten Peaks. Join your guide for a short walk up the Rockpile at Moraine Lake, where you’ll find the iconic view that was once on the back of the Canadian $20 bill.

    During the tour your guide will weave tales of the early mountaineers, who also fell in love with this spot in the 1890s.
