Lake Minnewanka, Banff Reviews
One of the secrets of the rockies! This is not as popular or touristy as other lakes. Cant quite understand, but actually that's why I love this one particularly. Very nice wall all the way up to the canyon. Easy terrain. Spectacular landscapes at sunrise! Highly recommend it to visit!
Went during winter. Spectacular view. Wildlife can be seen in the area. A must visit spot.
Beautiful lake! Great for short or long hikes. Or just sitting by the shore and drinking coffee.
This is one of the most beautiful sightseeing trip when your in Banff National Park. Staff is kind and professional. The boat is clean and overall it feels premium. Highly recommended.
