Banff Half-Day Hikes

Prices are the same for all half-day hike locations. Please note that that the difficulty for each hike is also indicated.

  1. Bow Glacier Trail (Banff) Easy/Moderate - 4 hours - 9.2 km.
    At the base of Bow Glacier Falls, amid the spray and roar, you can witness the birth of a river. The Bow River, part of western Canada’s largest watershed, begins as meltwater tumbling down from the Wapta Icefield.
  2. Lake Agnes (Banff) Moderate - 4 hours - 6.8 km.
    This trail begins at Lake Louise. A beautiful sight to begin the hike that gradually is shaded by the trees, as you begin up the Agnes Trail. This trail is gradually increasing in elevation, but comfortably through a series of switchbacks. Views of the lake are visible through breaks in the trees as you climb. This trail is shared with hikers and horses up until just before the Historic Lake Agnes Teahouse. Once at the teahouse, beverages and food are available to have while viewing the beautiful hidden lake. Return journey is mostly downhill, with lots of shade from our evergreen forests.
