Great experience with the Moraine Lake Bus Company for sunrise at Moraine Lake. Mitch was a great driver and also provided a ton of great recommendations for the area. You can tell they really care about ensuring you're comfortable and that you have a great time in Banff! It was nice to have a reservation in place to ensure you get to the lake(s) and don't need to worry about traffic and parking. Highly recommend.

The driver Mitch made the whole experience to Lake Louise and Moraine Lake a pleasure, was full of knowledge and was very friendly and funny. It was much better to get the Bus than park at Lake Louise as it was packed. Will definitely use again.

Very much enjoyed riding with Moraine Lake Bus Company. Josh drove us safely to Lakes Louise and Moraine. He offered valuable insights into the lakes and was very friendly. Gavin was very welcoming and drove us back to the ski resort. Booking was easy, directions were clear, and service was professional and prompt. Highly recommend the company.

Sunrise times for Moraine Lake can be viewed here

It really depends on what you plan to do when you arrive. Many guests like to watch the sunrise from the Rockpile and take the first shuttle back at 7:15 a.m. for breakfast and a coffee in Lake Louise Village.

Other people take advantage of hiking or rent a canoe, and the time for each of these activities varies greatly.

We recommend booking the last shuttle from Moraine Lake. If you’re back earlier, you can hop on an earlier bus if there’s space. Please send us an email if you’re trying to climb one of the bigger routes in the area and we can help you out with more information.

Our shuttles have enough space for passengers to bring strollers, large backpacks, climbing equipment, inflatable paddle boards, and walkers. Our buses do not have space to accommodate hard canoes or kayaks.

If bringing a watercraft to Moraine Lake or Lake Louise, please ensure you are compliant with all Banff National Park Water Activity Rules & Regulations

If it’s more than 72 hours before your departure, you can modify the time and date of your departure as many times as you like—free of charge. There are no refunds for cancelling your ticket; however, we encourage you to reschedule to ensure you can still visit Moraine Lake and Lake Louise.

If it’s less than 72 hours before your departure, sorry, there are no changes or modifications allowed. Hikers plan their vacation around visiting Moraine Lake, and taking a shuttle is their only option. Out of respect for others requiring the shuttle, we need to give people enough time to plan and book.

There are no refunds or reschedules if you miss the bus. Our buses always leave on time, so please plan to arrive at your bus stop at least 15 minutes before your departure.

If you miss our last departure, you will have to walk 18 km back to your vehicle. Don’t be late!

You can book a ticket for our Moraine Lake shuttle up to 1 hour before departure. After that, we will sell any remaining tickets to visitors waiting at the bus stop.

Yes. Parks Canada requires all adult visitors to Banff National Park (Lake Moraine is located within the park) to buy a permit for the duration of their stay. Passes are available to buy online, or in person at Parks Canada’s park gates, and at information centres in Banff and Lake Louise.

There is no cell service at Moraine Lake. You start to gain cell reception approximately three (3) kilometres down the road toward Lake Louise.

Unfortunately not. However, vehicles travelling with a blue hang tag will always be granted access to the parking lots at Moraine Lake by Parks Canada.
