Things to do in Lake Louise

One of the most photographed scenes in the Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Famous for its stunning turquoise lake, and beautiful chateau, the town is surrounded by some of the best hikes in Banff National Park and has a world class ski hill on the doorstep. As a visitor to Lake Louise you really do feel closer to nature.

The town itself is a charming resort town with a small shopping centre containing everything you’ll need, and a handful of top notch restaurants. With its unique position toward the western side of Banff National Park, it’s the perfect base for skiing, hiking and water sports; and, as the southernmost point of the Icefields Parkway, it is the starting point forfor many Rocky Mountain activities.

Some of the exciting tours departing from Lake Louise include the Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Tour in the summer, and Snow Tubing and Snowshoeing in the winter. The Columbia Icefields Discovery Tours, will take you up the Icefields Parkway to the Athabasca Glacier Discover Centre, and the Glacier Skywalk.
