Getting To Your Favorite Destinations in 2023
Banff National Park
Due to high demand, visiting Lake Louise and Moraine Lake requires planning. Parking lots fill up before sunrise and remain full until sunset. Taking transit or booking a Parks Canada shuttle is easy, stress-free and the only way to ensure you see these iconic lakes. Booking your shuttle in advance is required. Lake Louise is paid parking.

New in 2023 – Moraine Lake Road is closed to personal vehicles
Moraine Lake Road is closed to personal vehicles year round. Parks Canada shuttles, Roam Public Transit, and commercial buses are permitted from June to mid-October.
Washroom and drop off/pick up areas cannot be accessed when parking is full. Plan ahead, arrive with extra time and patience, and have back-up areas to visit.
Reservations for shuttles are available Spring 2023. Additional seats will be released in a rolling window, at 8 a.m. MDT two days prior to departure day.
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!
