Lake Louise

Visit Lake Louise

Introduction

Clear waters surrounded by snow-topped mountains make a Lake Louise holiday an unmissable part of your Banff National Park tour. The large Victoria Glacier floats on the lake's surface and this ‘Jewel of the Rockies' can be fully appreciated after a gondola ride up Mount Whitehorn.

The formation of Lake Louise dates back to the end of the Ice Age. Stay at least a few days to absorb your surroundings on the number of hiking trails and visits to nearby provincial parks.

As a result of large annual snowfall, Lake Louise hosts the Alpine Ski World Cup tour every November. Guests of this quieter ski resort will experience brilliant access to a variety of slopes and stunning views.

The Icefield Parkway offers stunning views while winding through The Rockies from Lake Louise to Jasper National Park.
