Dolce Tempo Journey in Banff & Lake Louise

Play. Pause. Repeat. It’s the Canadian Rockies’ call-to-action. Walk to impossibly blue lakes and breathtaking waterfalls. For a moment, you hang back, eyes closed, and inhale the sweet scent of Douglas fir. Discover hidden Kananaskis Country along trails through open meadows lined with wildflowers. Then take five to gaze in awe at snowcapped peaks reflected in aquamarine waters. Play. Pause. Sweet.
