About Lake Louise

Nestled into the heart of the Banff National Park is the tiny hamlet of Lake Louise. With the surrounding stunning geography of the Canadian Rockies and the national park, Lake Louise is the perfect destination for active travelers to explore and those looking to simply unwind.

When you are ready to head out into the great outdoors, there are many activities from hiking to wildlife watching to spending time on Lake Louise itself.

If you aren’t feeling up to a day of hiking, you can simply drive the various parkways to see the jaw-dropping views at the overlooks or take the Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola.

Another option would be to stay in Lake Louise and get a spa treatment!

Don’t forget that Lake Louise becomes a winter wonderland as soon as the snow hits. You can ski, snow tube, snowshoe, and more!
