Best of Lake Louise Guide

Print this guide 
Lake Louise
Alpine, cross-country skiing, heli-skiing and snowboarding are popular activities in quiet Lake Louise, 35 miles east of Banff, as are ice fishing, skating, dog sledding and ice climbing. In summer, the area attracts almost as many visitors to its trails, waters and rock faces. Peer into turquoise Lake Louise in Banff National Park, three miles from the town of the same name, and be amazed by the color. The renowned grand hotel Chateau Lake Louise sits at the brim of the eponymous lake.
