Lake Minnewanka Cruise
Venture far out onto a legendary lake aboard the Lake Minnewanka Cruise tour. Travelling the pristine shoreline offers countless natural wonders, and the tour provides plenty to listen to as well - from the indigenous history of this treasured place to the essential role of wildlife in the ecosystem.
Perhaps most impactful of all is the immensity of the mountains that overcomes and quiets the group when the boat’s captain cuts the engine in the middle of the lake. For those few minutes, the hush of the wind and the waves amplifies the spirit of Banff National Park.
