DAY 1: CALGARY & LAKE LOUISE
Guests need to arrive in Calgary by 12pm. We will gather and leave for Lake Louise, arriving by 4pm. We will begin by hiking alongside the glaciated blue waters of Lake Louise. As we hike through dense pine, we make our way up to the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House with incredible views of Victoria Glacier. We will then traverse two miles leading us to Lake Agnes, nestled beneath the peak of Mt. Niblock. After another break on the shores of the quaint Lake Agnus, we will descend back down to our starting point at Lake Louise. Because the days are longer here, we will enjoy a long period of dusk and finish at approximately 10pm.
DAY 2: LAKE MORAINE
We begin our day early at 7 am. After enjoying breakfast on the shores of Lake Moraine, we begin our trek up the Rockpile Trail climbing high above Lake Moraine. On our way you will enjoy breathtaking vistas of the Valley of Ten Peaks and the impossibly blue waters of Lake Moraine. We will continue up through the Larch Valley, covered in ground cover and wildflowers. We will cross over the Sentinel Pass enjoying the sweeping 360’ views as we descend through the magnificent Paradise Valley. You will enjoy hiking a single track trail through a forested valley, colored with every shade of green. A swift running river, small mountain lakes and monstrous glaciers looming far above. This is a trail never to be forgotten.
DAY 3: LAKE BAKER BY HORSEBACK
Today we will rest our feet and take in a stunning ride on horseback. We will join up with our well established outfitter and head in to Lake Baker, one of the most beautiful lakes and valley in this area. We will start off in heavy pine, but soon we rise above the trees and have unimpeded views of the peaks all around. Afterward, we will head back to the lodge where you can rest or walk over to Lake Louise and stroll along the shore.
DAY 4: LOWER EMERALD
We will give you the option today to choose your adventure.
High Adventure Option:Canyoning through a mountain slot canyon which includes a full day of rappels, descents, waterfalls and pools. Great for beginners or outdoor enthusiasts alike.

DAY 5: STUNNING PEAKS
For our final day, we have contracted with a private helicopter service to carry us to a secluded valley, high atop these stunning peaks. We will traverse an incredible single track trail with memorable vistas all around, and not another soul in sight. Afterward, we will head back to Banff and enjoy a final dinner together.
