After 4 km on a wide access road, you will reach a world dotted with lakes and inviting alpine meadows. From the pass, you get a spectacular view into a remote corner of Banff National Park.
The Skyline Trail is considered one of the most popular backcountry walks in the Canadian Rockies. With more than half of the 44-km trail above the treeline, the views are expansive and spectacular. Most walkers choose to start beside Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park and trek north to the base of Signal Mountain. Walking this challenging trail takes between two and six days. Remote campsites are available along the route and should be booked well in advance.
This 23 kilometre trail follows the shoreline of Lesser Slave Lake and can be accessed from Devonshire Beach, North Shore Day Use Area, the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation and Marten River Campground. The trail gives visitors fantastic views of the lake and surrounding boreal forest. Excellent wildlife viewing opportunities abound on this portion of Canada’s longest continuous recreational trail.
The quiet beauty of winter in Lake Louise is a delight to explore on snowshoes! Swishing through fresh powder, you notice how the snow acts as a canvas, recording the tracks of snowshoe hares, pine martens and even the occasional lynx. The guide reveals hidden secrets too: beneath the snowpack are hibernating grizzly bears. You're asked a “Griz Quiz” question and there's a surprising answer. You've laughed and you've learned.
