Standing and walking on a combination of paved surfaces and gravel trails with steps and varying levels of steepness. Moraine Lake requires a very short, uphill hike to the viewpoint. Our stop at the Columbia Icefields has a short walk onto the glacier. Some optional paths at Peyto lake have steeper pitches on paved surfaces, and Maligne Canyon has some steeper pitches on gravel trails.
Sunrise & Sunset
Because this is a photo tour, the priority of this trip will be focused on making the best photographs you can possibly make. This means we’ve structured the itinerary to coincide with the best lighting, i.e., sunrise or sunset shooting. For this tour and time of year, sunrise is around 6:15 AM and sunset is around 9:15 PM. If we choose to shoot at sunrise, we will be eating breakfast after the shoot.
