Family Activities in Banff - Peyto Lake is OPEN for the Season


Peyto Lake Lookout - No Photoshop Required

Renowned for its aqua-blue hue, Peyto Lake is a true gem glistening in the Canadian Rockies.

The beautiful, glacier-fed fed lake is named after one of the first pioneers of Banff, Bill Peyto and is a must-see for any visitor to Banff National Park.

The iconic shot of Peyto Lake is found atop a small peak, adjacent to the lake. The short, family friendly 10 minute hike to the lookout point is accessible from the Peyto Lake car park and along a paved walkway. From here you can breathe in the truly astounding mountain views as you look out across the lake and towards Jasper.

Located off the Icefields Parkway approximately 2hrs from your Banff hotel, the amazing drive is well worth making to see this iconic lake. There are lots of photo opportunities along the way, plus rest stops to give your little ones (and you) a chance to stretch your legs.

Family Travel Tip: Why not make Lake Louise your halfway point and pick up some tasty treats at Laggan’s Mountain Bakery, where the hardest decision of your day will be choosing between a bagel, brownie or homemade pizza!

We have great Summer 2012 prices available, including 15% off our Studio and One Bedroom Condo in July! Click here to check prices for you Banff hotel holiday.
