“Attractive lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a beautiful lake and it was interesting to walk along the shore and visit the huge and impressive Chateaux with the spectacular view of the mountains in the distance. However we felt it was not as impressive as the nearby Lake Moraine which was really special and was a little less busy.

“One of the best places in Alberta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is the place you don't want to miss in summer or winter. I would recommend a visit to lake side in Summer and visit to Village side in winter.
The summer fun would be a lovely hike around the lake, canoeing, enjoying a nice barbeque and biking around the lake area, you amy even find snow for some skiing / snowboarding if ts early months of summer. While the winter fun is skiing/ snowboarding/snowshoeing in Lake Louise village, snow shoeing / cross country skiing around the hills and may be a drive around the National Park area uptill 2 lakes, but make sure its not a blizzard day, or the fun will be driving at 20 Km/h for hrs in the area with low visibility.

“Lake Louise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We went on honeymoon here and it was the most beautiful place I have ever seen, travelling on the Bow Valley Parkway (a1) off the Trans Canada Highway and seen moose, deer, coyotes ,wolves, sheep and goats all in their natural habitat. The Fairmont Chateau is situated among the pines at Lake Louise and is a beautiful grand hotel with breathtaking views of the Canadian rockies and the spectacular lake.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We went by bus on brewster travels from vancouver to banff through rockies. We took a lake tour in banff and went to lake louise..... It is one of the best attractions i have seen so far. The view of the glacier, the hills and the water is simply the best. You ought to spend atleast an hour to enjoy her beauty.
