The Summer Solstice signifies a turning point where the days get shorter and the nights get longer, acting as a reminder to take advantage of the summer days ahead.
Immerse yourself in nature on June 20 as we embark on our very first Summer Solstice voyage
with Banff Lake Cruise
. Enjoy a fun-filled and informative evening with a special interpretive tour to celebrate the change of the seasons. Sit back, relax and savour a glass of wine as the sun begins to set on the longest day of the year.
You will be whisked away onto the magnificent waters of Lake Minnewanka on an extended lake cruise. Enjoy this rare opportunity to view the mountains in the evening light. Dusk is prime-time for wildlife viewing, providing opportunities for observing animals along the shoreline in areas only accessible by water.
Enjoy being surrounded by panoramic views while listening to stories from our experienced captains. Our covered boats will shelter you from the elements while on the lake.
"The sunsets over the lake will take your breath away!" - Jodi S (TripAdvisor)
Summer brings a hive of wildlife activity to the Rockies and we’re very lucky to be able to share the valley with these stunning creatures. While we cannot guarantee a sighting, you just might get to see something amazing!
