Help w/ quick Lake Louise itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hey all -- my husband and I are escaping our two young children to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Lake Louise. The trip is shorter than we'd prefer, but such is life and we are thankful for generous grandparents helping us out.

We are going in mid-June. Our current itinerary is below -- would love any thoughts or suggestions on what to do. We would primarily like to relax & explore -- with only a short amount of time, what should we do?

Wed night:
Arrive very late in Calgary, stay at airport hotel

Thursday:
Drive to Lake Louise -- stop in Banff for 4-5 hours to explore and have lunch.
Question: What should we do with a 1/2 day in Banff?
We check-in Thursday afternoon to the Post Hotel, where we are staying for 3 nights

Friday:
Get up early and do the Plain of Six Glaciers hike up to the tea house
What to do Friday afternoon and evening? Where is your favorite spot for dinner -- back at the Post Hotel?

Saturday:
No plan yet for the daytime -- considering visiting Lake Moraine or doing an Ice Walk tour on the Athabasca glacier. Any other ideas?
We have dinner reservations at Walliser Stube at the Fairmont Chateau - I heard it was great

Sunday:
By late morning we need to drive back to the Calgary airport -- have time for a quick activity or just a leisurely breakfast

I would love any recommendations. Thanks!
