The summer tourist season winds down into the autumn shoulder season. By September, Banff National Park starts its quiet descent into cooler temperatures from its warmest summer highs. Fall here starts in mid-September, both officially and unofficially. Along with the cooler weather, September also brings with its the changing of colors. Fall is an incredible time to visit park, and there are so many advantages to coming at this time of year. The scenery is more magical than in summer and if you’re lucky enough to visit when the Larch Trees have turned golden you will be in for a treat. Unlike during winter and spring, the famous glacial lakes of Banff National Park won’t be frozen. In autumn, you’ll experience some of the top places to visit in Banff at their best. Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Bow Lake and Peyto Lake will all be at full technicolor glory.
