The views of this kid-friendly hike are absolutely amazing! Emilie recommends to arrive early in the morning! This area around Lake Louise offers a few options to hike, but with the little ones, we recommend to stay on the trails going around the lake! This trail is Wheelchair accessible, offers parking nearby and is completely free.

Lake Louise Trail with Views

With about 1.4Km round trip this hike is still easy enough to bring the kids along (Emilie’s 4 years old walked it all the way). The views are gorgeous and a canyon hike is sure to impress our youngest travelers. Traveling while social distancing is made easy here, pooch are welcome of course and there is a good amount of shade. You will even find bathrooms nearby (ideal if you potty-train!) Heads up, it is NOT an accessible trail and strollers are not recommended!

Beach of the Quarry Lake ideal for a summer swim

If your little ones are into swimming, this trail and lake beach will be the perfect spot! You can walk along the lake for about 3km while admiring the mountains that surrounds you. Bring Fido  and even your stroller along since everything is accessible. And with bathrooms available as well as lots of shade, this hike is perfect for a more leisure stroll with the younger kids.

Who Knew? While you are visiting the Banff you can also learn about Dinosaurs and see some fossils! The museum is great and interactive but you can also enjoy all the small hikes around it. This is the perfect spot to grab a bite, relax, catch some WIFI. Wheelchairs and strollers are able to maneuver there as well! If you decide to stay for the night, you can also enjoy a great campsite right there onsite.
