You have seen photos of the lake but they haven’t prepared you for how it feels to experience it yourself. Rounding the corner, the sight of the emerald green water and rugged peaks and glaciers hits you viscerally. You’ve never seen anything so dramatically beautiful. Late in the day, with the glowing sun dropping behind Mount Victoria, it is quiet and still. As you wander around the lakeside path it seems like the whole scene is for just you to enjoy. It is a feeling you will remember forever.

Lake Louise has long been a mecca for adventures. From sleigh rides, to dog sledding, paddling, hiking and more, there is something here for every level of adventurer. Visit our Winter in Lake Louise and Summer in Lake Louise pages for more on seasonal activities.

With endless adventures in every direction, making Lake Louise your basecamp is a great way to explore Banff National Park. Those looking to wake up with a lakeside view will love the luxury of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Seconds away from the lake is Deer Lodge – a historic lodge with many amenities, including a rooftop jacuzzi. If you’re looking for a cozy Lake Louise getaway, check out Paradise Bungalows – a family-owned operation that offers individual cabins for the full romantic mountain experience. The hamlet of Lake Louise also offers several accommodation options, including The Mountaineer Lodge. Baker Creek Mountain Resort is located just outside Lake Louise and offers a serene cabin-style accommodation.

Lake Louise is also home to some incredible restaurants – many of which practice a farm-to-table ethos, bringing together the best of Alberta meats, to pair with the incredible nearby growing regions in British Columbia. Sample authentic game meats at Deer Lodge, pair an incredible view with a beautiful Okanagan wine at The Fairview Dining Room or ride a gondola to indulge in cuisine at The Whitehorn Bistro. Other must-visit places include The Baker Creek Bistro, The Station Restaurant, Laggan’s Mountain Bakery and The Lake Agnes Tea House.
