Standard itinerary is 2.5 hours at each lake. This gives enough time for either a short hike or canoe rental, as well as food purchase and stroll along the lakeshore.
Group 1 - early morning start has the option to skip Lake Louise and only go to Moraine Lake for 5 hours. This option is ideal for hikers wishing to hike a longer trail (e.g. Eiffel Lake, Larch Valley-Sentinel Pass).
Option to combine Group 1 and 2 for extended stay (5 hrs) at Lake Louise, by departing with Group 1 en route to Lake Louise, but join Group 2 for rest of the itinerary. This option is ideal for hikers wishing to hike to Lake Agnes Tea House and beyond.
