Lake Minnewanka

Lake Minnewanka is the only lake in Banff National Park that allows the limited use of power boats. That being said, when visiting the lake in the summer, take advantage of the cruise tour offerings! On the one-hour trip, guests are treated to beautiful views of the 13-mile long lake along with the story about early settlers, and the village that’s now submerged 450 feet deep. Minnewanka’s namesake is from the indigenous Stoney Nakoda First Nations people, who called it Minn-waki, or Lake of the Spirits.
