Guests of the Mountaineer Lodge who wish to visit Lake Louise or Moraine Lake need to make a shuttle reservation.
Here's how you can visit our iconic lakes in Lake Louise.
Step 1. Book your seat on the Parks Canada Shuttle asap. Shuttle reservations are booked for a one-hour time block. There is one shuttle for Lake Louise Lakeshore and one shuttle for Moraine Lake. Choose which Lake you would like to visit first. See step 5 for visiting both lakes. Book your reservation now
Step 2. Save your shuttle reservation to your phone or print it out.
Step 3. When you are in Lake Louise, you can walk over the Samson Mall to hop on the Park and Ride Connector (no charge, no reservation required). The Park & Ride Connector shuttle runs every 30 minutes from 8 am to 8 pm. It is a shuttle that loops between the village of Lake Louise (Samson Mall) and the Lake Louise Park & Ride (6 km east of the village) where your Lake shuttle goes from. Make sure you give yourself enough time to get to your reserved shuttle seat time (read step 4).
Step 4. Arrive at the Lake Louise Park and Ride during the one-hour time block indicated on the ticket. You may arrive at any time during this one-hour window. Parks Canada staff will check you in you and direct you to the correct boarding area. Tickets are non-transferable and a photo ID may be requested to verify that the ticket purchaser is present. Enjoy!
Step 5: If you want to visit the other lake, you can take the Lake Connector shuttle to the other lake by showing your original Park & Ride ticket.
Step 6. Hop on the shuttle going to the Park & Ride and from there you will take the Park and Ride Connector return to the Mountaineer Lodge. Your ticket also includes your return to the village.
NOTE: A Parks Canada National Park Pass is not included in your shuttle reservation.
