Moraine Lake Sunrise Tour

GUEST

$95.00 CAD

Ticket price includes a round trip to Moraine Lake and back to your pickup/drop off points. We carefully calculate all pick-up times to make sure you arrive 45 minutes before sunrise.

You’ll have 2 hours to take in the views and explore the surroundings before our shuttle departs to return you to your pickup location. Unlike other buses, our shuttle stays in the Moraine Lake parking lot the entire time, so you can always return early if you get cold or need an extra piece of gear.

At Moraine Lake Sunrise Shuttle, we know the little details make all the difference. That’s why we supply headlamps to light your way along the lakeshore, blankets for sitting or snuggling and a hot beverage of your choice to keep you warm and cozy.
