Your summer plans are about to get more exciting. Canada's top attractions are starting to open to the public again just in time for the warm weather. After weeks of staying indoors, you can start planning your next hiking adventure. To help you stay updated, we've gathered up a list of the top sights in Alberta that are re-opening in June.\nParks Canada has announced that several locations will be opening like Jasper and Banff National Park as of June 1. If you are like us, chances you are probably thrilled to soak up the sunshine by a turquoise lake.\nWithin the national parks, you can expect new safety measures, such as limited parking spaces. You will also need to wear a mask and stay at least two metres away from other people.\nBut one thing you can look forward to is the lack of crowds. Usually, spots like Lake Louise or Maligne Canyon are packed with tourists.\nBut this year, you can experience the sights like you never have before. Get ready to take some breathtaking, postcard-worthy photos.\nYou'll also want to grab some tickets for the Banff Gondola that opens on Friday, June 4, and the Columbia Icefield Skywalk on Friday, June 19.\nBow Lake\nWhen: Opens Monday, June 1\nAddress: Banff National Park, Improvement District No. 9, AB\nWhy You Need To Go: It's time to get excited, as of the first of June, you'll be able to see the vibrant turquoise water of Bow Lake. \nUpon reopening, the Bow Lake Day use area will have a restriction on the number of vehicles in the parking lot.\n View this post on Instagram I followed this ‘trail’ on an app, thinking there would be some sort of a path. Nope, I bush whacked my way through a forest and then scrambled up a mountain side, but with a view over Bow Lake that not many people get to see, I was satisfied. I had every intention on going further up, but I loved this view so much that I just stayed here until it was time to get lost on the way back down again! #bowlake #icefieldsparkway #canadianrockies #mybanff #banff #banffnationalpark #alberta #canada . . . #allaboutadventures #shewhowanders #getlostclub #choosemountains #exploremore #outdoorbella #wildme #mtnchicks #takemetothemountains #dametraveler #thetravelwomen #aroundtheworld #lifeofadventure #speechlessplaces #adventureawaits #beautifuldestinations #sheisnotlost #shetravels #travelphotography #passionpassport #wearetravelgirls #whyihike A post shared by Rhyll de Teliga (@rhylldeteliga) on May 17, 2020 at 3:38pm PDT\n\nWebsite\nFairmont Chateau Lake Louise\nWhen: Opens Monday, June 1\nAddress: 111 Lake Louise Dr., Lake Louise, AB\nWhy You Need To Go: Guests of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise will now find kits in their room that include masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and disinfection wipes.

There is really something about traveling; learning, failing, strangers becoming your friends, you become more independent, airports will be your family, luggage will be your enemy, less is more will be your favorite quote. I couldn’t imagine a life without traveling, meeting strangers and adventure the bom out of this world. I feel so humbled and blessed that I can travel, that I have the confidence to book a flight knowing I’m going to travel alone. The fact that I actually CAN travel is just something I really don’t take for granted. I’m healthy, I’m wealthy (if you can work and have food on your table you are wealthy) and I’m living in the moment. Everyday is a blessing, we are all here for a reason and we all have different purposes in life. I’m sure my purpose was to travel 🤭😂 it’s a new month, it’s new moon and it’s a new day. Let’s celebrate life and do more of what we love. ♾🌴⛰🗺 A post shared by Creative Travel Soul (@bomkanari) on Oct 31, 2019 at 1:08pm PDT\n\nWebsite\nBow Valley Parkway\nWhen: Opens Monday, June 1 \nAddress: Bow Valley Pkwy., Improvement District No. 9, AB\nWhy You Need To Go: The Bow Valley Parkway is a cyclist and hiker's dream.

Now only one group can enter a gondola car, and they will be sanitized after each use. \nThere will also be a 50% reduction in the capacity of public spaces like the interpretive center, lobby and restaurants.\n View this post on Instagram Going, going, gondola! 🚡 #trinastravels ⠀ ⠀ 📍 Banff Gondola: take a quick trip up the mountain while soaking in the 360° views from your glass-enclosed gondola. ⠀ 💡 #protip: 1️⃣ Take the first time slot up to avoid crowds (especially large tour groups) so you can get the best views and photos. The trade off is that the restaurants aren’t open that early. 2️⃣ Ride the free shuttle that goes from downtown to Banff Gondola (check the schedule as our ticket was earlier than the first shuttle so we couldn’t use this option). ⠀ 📲 #behindthegram: The gondola itself is like a personal ski lift and can accommodate 4 adults max (with the exception of small children). It’s a smooth and quick ride; thankfully, we never got altitude sickness but it’s always a possibility at those heights. ⠀ Thank you to @PursuitBanffJasper for the #gifted tickets! #PursuitLife A post shared by KATRINA | travel & lifestyle (@katrinamalaiba) on Oct 13, 2019 at 4:02pm PDT\n\nWebsite\n\n\n\nFairmont Banff Springs\nWhen: Opens Monday, June 1\nAddress: 405 Spray Ave., Banff, AB\nWhy You Need To Go: If you want to go on a staycation, you will be able to stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs as of Monday, June 1.\nThere will be some significant changes you can expect.
