Banff Lake Louise

No wonder stunning turquoise Lake Louise is known as the jewel of the Rockies.

Set in a small glacial valley, surrounded by snow-topped mountains, the lakeshore is threaded with hiking trails and viewpoints. On a clear day, you’ll see the reflected glory of this spectacular place captured in the lake’s mirror-like surface.

Another iconic site is the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise resort at the northern end of the lake.

While you’re here, ride the gondola to the summit of Mt Whitehorn, go skiing if there’s snow, head to the trails circling the lake or visit the nearby Moraine Lake.

Practical Info

Lake Louise is 57 km (35 miles) north of Banff, a scenic trip by bus or car.

The service town of Lake Louise is 5 km (3 miles) east of the lake. It’s worth taking the 45-minute walk along the footpath, or you can catch one of the regular shuttles.
