Reservations are required for all shuttles departing the Park and Ride to either lake. Tickets are for a one-hour window; you may show up anytime during that hour. Once at the lakes you may stay as long as you choose and connect between Lake Louise and Moraine Lake on a first come first serve basis, via the Lake Connector shuttle (available to Parks Canada Shuttle reservation holders only). Your ticket includes return shuttle service from either lake back to the Park and Ride when you are ready.

One ticket gives you the flexibility to see both iconic lakes in the same day or spend the day exploring one lake – the choice is yours!
