“stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Lake Louise is absolutely this perfect little lake in the woods, you drive along this long road in the woods and all of a sudden there is this little piece of heaven there! We took a horse drawn sleigh ride around the lake in the snow, wow, just amazingly beautiful!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We traveled there in July of 2012, with a Tauck tour, and it was absolutely sublime in all aspects. The lake and the icefields were both wonderful, as was the hotel there, the restaurants, and the service.
We also took the canoe out on the lake ( which is bigger than you think!) and that was also wonderful.
I would recommend Tauck tours to anyone...if you can get there with Tauck, go there with them.

“A must do on your list!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was a beautiful place. Took my breath away when I first set my eyes on the whole view!!! I have seen the pictures through all seasons, but my favourite season had always been winter.
It was my first time to walk 3.8km and ice skate on a frozen lake. Weather had been on our side as it was the only sunny day during our 2.5weeks of holiday.

“syunning natural location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We visited lake louise in summer of 2010, as part of a stay in Alberta. The lake and the setting are absolutely beautiful, the water is a magical turquoise. There is a beautiful walk with different branches to it around the lake, the lake louise chatteau sitting right on the lake side is also a must see and stay attraction on its own with stunning architecture. Amazing place to visit.

“Heaven on Earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lake Louise has to be, if not the most beautiful place in the World, it ranks in the Top 5. I know I read somewhere that it's the Most Photographed Vacation Spots in the World, and if you have ever been here, you know why. If you are one who is into Mountains, Spectacular Scenery, and Warm and Friendly people, then what are you waiting for?
