Summer Activities - Lake Minnewanka Boat Tour!

ShareThis



Lake Minnewanka; described as one of the must-see’s while on your Banff vacation, it truly is a sight to behold.

Just a short 15 minute drive from downtown Banff, Lake Minnewanka has captivated visitors for many years. Originally called ‘Lake of Spirits’ the Stoney people inhabited and hunted along the lake for more than 100 centuries. They respected and feared this lake for its resident spirits and recorded archaeological sites how shown artifacts that cover a 10,000 year period!
Fun Fact! 
Did someone leave the tap on?

There is an entire town under the surface of Lake Minnewanka! The original location of a summer resort village called Minnewanka Landing was established here in 1888, complete with avenues, streets, hotels and restaurants. However the site was flooded in 1941 by the Calgary Power Co. under the War Measures Act, and now it's a 'high altitude' dive site! Exciting stuff!

You can enjoy the spectacular views of the Canadian Rockies from the Lake Minnewanka boat tour as part of your Banff hotel’s Cruise, Soak & Soar package. The ultimate Canadian Rockies experience!

This three night package showcases the best of Banff! Relax on a cruise along the stunning Lake Minnewanka on a boat tour and then head up the Banff Gondola to get unparalleled panoramic vistas of Banff atop Sulphur Mt. before heading to the Upper Hot Springs to soak in the mineral waters.
