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.

Approximate tour duration:
Canmore pick-up: 5 hours
Banff pick-up: 4.5 hours
Lake Louise pick-up: 3 hours

*There is planned road construction through the village of Lake Louise for the duration of the 2024 season. Delays are inevitable. At this time we are unsure of what the impact will be on return times. Be sure to keep this in mind when planning activities after your tour.

While we don’t guide you around Moraine Lake and Lake Louise, our local guides are experts on the area and are happy to answer questions and give suggestions on how to best enjoy your time at the lakes.

Our shuttles and guides stay for the duration of your visit. We often enjoy sunrise on the rockpile or hiking the lake shore trails between taking care of guests.

You’re welcome to return to the van at any time during your visit. What you do while you’re there is up to you!

Our Moraine Lake Sunrise Shuttles are 15 passenger Ford Transit vans with a 6.5 foot ceiling making it cozy but with plenty of headroom so you don’t feel cramped. There is plenty of storage in the back for gear.

Our vehicles are thoroughly cleaned between each tour.

We have an extended back which can accommodate transportation of your gear. Whether you have a backpack or camera bag we have room to stow your stuff while on your journey.

Unfortunately pets are not allowed on the shuttle. Certified service dogs are always welcome.

We are the only Moraine Lake Shuttle pickup that moves with the sun! Our schedule is timed so that you get to Moraine Lake roughly 45 minutes before sunrise. However there are other providers if we don’t fit your needs. Our friends over at Moraine Lake Shuttle have a list.

Mornings can be quite chilly at Moraine Lake Sunrise. Temperatures can hover just above zero degrees even in the summer.

If you decide to do the Lake Louise Add-on we recommend bringing a daypack with water, bear spray and snacks. It’s also handy for storing those extra layers as the day warms up.
