Description

Lake Louise may be the most-photographed location in Banff National Park, famed for milky turquoise water reflecting dramatic, snow-capped peaks. But there’s far more to do here than simply snap a photo!

Surrounding Lake Louise is a mountain playground, with many miles of trails to explore. The nearby village of Lake Louise is the gateway to not only its namesake lake, but other photo-famous locations like the Plain of Six Glaciers, Moraine Lake, and Paradise Valley. One campsite or hotel room at Lake Louise can be your basecamp to all kinds of hikes in the Canadian Rockies: from picture-perfect strolls along a peaceful lakeshore to challenging scrambles on an alpine summit.
