Best Month to Visit Moraine Lake

Famous for its picturesque view that would take your breath away and make yourself realize that there are places on earth where you get a piece of heaven, get your preparations right to catch this awesome view.

You will not see the turquoise blue water if you visit Moraine Lake in freezing seasons. Visit Moraine Lake from late June to early October during warmer months for you to appreciate how the melted glacier’s rock flour and silt work together to create the place’s famous panorama.

Finest Time of the Day to Visit Moraine Lake

Also, consider the time of the day when you’ll visit. Photographers will advise you to make sure to go there during the golden hours, after sunrise or before sunset, of the day to catch the best lighting. The sun’s light gives a glow to the mountains and the lake that make the place look glorious.

Interestingly, these hours are also the time when tourists are not flocking yet. To be honest, some visitors do not fully appreciate the view of the lake because of too many people. Do not let this hassle ruin your trip by arriving there first or last. You’ll have all the space and peace you need at these times.

Things to do in Moraine Lake while you are there

There is more to Moraine Lake than climbing the Rockpile Trail to get to a vantage point and get a good photo. You can also hike its different trails to immerse yourself more in nature. Just be wary of bears and other wildlife as you trek as there are plenty of them. Make sure to check with authorities before you start venturing.

If you are a water lover, kayaking and riding canoes are the quests for you. Contrary to the omnipresent viewpoint of being on top of the lake, boat and canoe views offer a perspective of being inside the greatness of the place. Get your cameras ready! This will be one of your paramount boat rides ever!

Visit Moraine Lake via Travel & Tour Company

This factor, though last, should be the first thing you should consider before visiting Moraine Lake. Because of the number of tourists visiting the spot, full parking spaces, traffic build-up and road closures are most common. Travel with ease and book with travel and tour companies.

ABest Travel and Tours Services might be the one you are looking for to save you from the fears of being stuck in a line, missing the golden hour, and not enjoying Moraine Lake. We are a licensed and insured tour operator, and this gives us the privilege to enter the lake vicinity and get parking space at the designated tour bus parking.

Skip the cab, skip the bus and skip the shuttles—book us now and we’ll take you there any time without any bother.

Calgary, Alberta – Canada

Awarded as “Travelers’ Choice Best Private Transfer | Sightseeing Tour in Canada 2020” by Tripadvisor in partnership with Viator, you can trust that you are in good hands and excellent rides with ABest Transport and Tours Services.

Their clients tell us so, “We were greeted with smiles at Calgary airport and enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tour and drive to Banff with Aljay this afternoon. He was patient, accommodating, knowledgeable, took great family photos, and made us feel so welcome!” commented user RSB465.

They have professional and friendly drivers who know the ins and outs in Alberta. They arrive on time to pick you up and drop you to your itineraries. They even go above and beyond taking your pictures and giving you suggestions on where to eat and have a stopover to have some great photos taken.

Customer care, safety, and professionalism are the characteristics ABest Transport and Tours Services value most; hence, they are very communicative to their clients. One feedback voiced how the company’s processes were available online. They were able to do all transactions and even payment in a bliss.

TripAdvisor user Chatterboxmegan shared,I found this company via Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The service was excellent. It was easy to get a quote and securely pay. Our driver emailed us the night before the pick up to confirm all details.”

Another customer feedback expressed how he had a delayed flight, but the driver from ABest Transport and Tours Services was still able to adjust and show up as needed. Another rider said he has car sickness, so the driver adjusted his driving pace.

“We are honoured to receive this award, proud of our great team of Filipino-Canadian for earning them, and thankful to our travelers from around the world for recognizing our services and taking their time to provide a review to TripAdvisor,” said Jeff Esguerra, President of ABest Transport and Tours Services.

Since 2017, ABest's team has been true to its mission to provide safe, reliable, and excellent travel experience in the Canadian Rockies. With their passion, they aim to continue providing unparalleled service not only in their current area but hopefully around the globe.

Jeff was our driver, he was lovely. He took us to the Rockies for our trip and we spent the rest of the day sightseeing, it was brilliant. A trip we will never forget, our first time in Canada. Thank you,” said Reikiangel2014 in TripAdvisor’s site.

A ride from and to the Calgary YCC Airport, a tour for a day or two around Alberta is not only a few hours or a few days in people’s lives—these are days to remember especially when they are traveling a new place. ABest Transport and Tours Services take part in creating those good memories by delivering all demands and expectations you had from the time of booking. If they don’t meet the requirement—it is because they went the extra mile.

“We booked a day tour with them that was only supposed to last 8 hours, but they went beyond that. It seems like the tour ends when the customer is done and ready to retire for the day. In our case, our tour guide offered to take us to 2 more locations but my friend and I were the ones that said NO because we were so tired already. HA!” shared TripAdvisor user Liz.
