Lake Louise is a very beautiful place to visit but it is not without its frustrations namely parking and sheer numbers of bus trippers. To really enjoy this venue you have to get away from the volume of short stay visitors and this can best be done by visiting early in the morning, late at night or doing some of... More

Forty years ago in a photography class, the teacher suggested going to Lake Louise because of it natural beauty. Finally got my chance last week. Parking was horrendous. There were well over a thousand people there. It was difficult to see the lake itself because of all of the bright orange and yellow rental canoes and kayaks. We asked the... More

I remember seeing pictures of lake Louise years ago and deciding I had to get to Canada one day. It did not disappoint. We arrived about 5pm so didn't have to deal with the day time madness but there were still a lot of people there. We spent a lovely hour on the waterfront taking it all in and taking... More

Lake Louise is always touted as the iconic lake by travel agents in Australia. It is very pretty but not awe inspiring. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic location and views of gorgeous Lake Louise, wonderful setting. Wait staff, especially Robyn and Meghan were outstanding. Breakfast was very good. Lake view Lounge and Poppy's were good in terms of food and views. The new Italian restaurant Lago is awful. Expensive and the food is very poor. It is supposed to be Itslian food with a twist but...

Beautiful lake, with a glacier in the background. The Fairmont Chateau is also beautiful and worth walking around.

We walked the top trail to Mirror Lake then up to Lake Agnes. After that we walked down towards the Six Glaciers and then on down to Lake Louise and back to the beginning. The walk was about 14 kms (according to a Garmin fitness band) and there were plenty of places where great photos could be taken of the... More

Lake Louise is central within the national parks, It is very busy place, pretty town, heaps of awesome hikes, camping grounds (In town) are great. Only $2.90 for a shower if you don't want to stay. Friendly people behind the counters. If it's crappy weather there you can drive 20 minutes down the road to YoHo National Park, which is... More

I got there about 8:30. Lake Louise was still. It mirrored everything around it...the mountains, the boat house and boats, the resort and the people. Amazing!
