For just a few weeks in the month of the September, the Rockies turn into literal ‘mountains of gold’. It’s our favorite time of the year in Banff…the colours of the landscape that greet you every morning take your breath away, the fall temperatures make for warm sunny days and cozy evenings, the streets of downtown seem calmer, and the seasonally inspired menus make your tastebuds dance. Those of us fortunate enough to explore Banff
, Lake Louise
during this short but sweet window don’t ever forget it.
The Lake Louise Fall Festival celebrates this magical time of year with a range of activities and events that offer something for everyone. Whether it’s your first trip to the area or your tenth, be ready to discover and explore in a whole new way. Head into the forests of golden larch trees the old-fashioned way – by foot or on horseback! Enjoy a fall hike for families and mountaineers alike. Up your exploration by joining a special program like a fall photography workshop or guided hike with yoga and meditation.
