This is something that we have seen many times on TV and thought that this looks so lovely. Well lovely really doesn't describe it. It is absolutely STUNNING. Our first view was from our window which was in line with the path leading down to the lake. A view to take your breath away. We were told to wait t... More

Stunning but blimey was it packed with buses, I guess that's part of the deal and everyone has the same right to be there but it was a bit upsetting to see people so obsessed with selfie that they did not look at the stunning scenery

Get there early if you want to avoid the swarms of the selfie stick brigade. We took out a canoe on the lake when it was like a mill pond. We then hiked along the lakeside and up to the teahouse. Note there are two and this one is a much tougher hike... BUT worth the hike...

One of the worlds most beautiful places-try to go early & miss the tourists!! Have a coffe then walk around the lake side for stunning views.

Tranquil, beautiful, majestic, turquoise, serene....just a few of the words that come to mind when visiting the beautiful Lake Louise in Banff National Park. You can hike, canoe, fish, or just enjoy the magnificent beauty of this little bit of heaven here on earth. And it's so much more than just a visual experience. The smell, the feel, the ambience...

Hands down the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. The view is just breath taking. The water was very turquoise. I hiked two trails. Was very tired by the end but felt very accomplished. 10/10 recommend this if going to Banff.

It was pouring rain the day we visited Lake Louise but it was stunning all the same. The view was spectacular and what struck me most was how natural and clean everything was despite the large number of tourists. Parking might be tricky, but there are shuttles. Lots of accessible hiking trails, short easy ones and longer ones for the... More

Wish we had more time to go canoeing on the lake! It was raining so we drove,to Lake Morraine first. By the time we finished there 18 km away, the rain had stopped and the sunshine shone upon Lake Louise. The water was a powdery light blue. Amazing.

The most beautiful place which has to be seen to be believed. The colour of the water is so stunning. I sincerely hope that the glacier that feeds this lake does not retreat with global warming. You must visit and take lots of photos.

Possibly the best place I have ever been to in my life! We were gobsmacked by the turqoise lake and the view. Its absolutely stunning. Went into the hotel (bit posh) for lunch and had to wait for a table for around an hour but who cares when you have that view! Beautiful, wont ever forget it.
