“WOW!! Well worth the hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We knew there was a tea house at the top of the 7 glacier hike, but we weren't aware that they actually served food which was a pleasant surprise after the hike up there. The food was excellent, we had tea and scones and soup and it was just fantastic. As well as seeing huge avalanches from the balcony of the tea house, the whoule hike and experience of this day is once of the best i've ever had. One of the best hikes i've ever done.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This is a long day hike and a long way up. You have to go beyond the teahouse up on the scree to see the glaciers and see the and hear parts crash down. There is one spot that is a narrow path that has a huge drop on one side and a lesser drop on the other.
Bring two bottles of water each.

“Awesome hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My fiance and I hiked to the teahouse this summer on our vacation in Alberta. The hike was amazing. I am not an avid hiker, but I was able to hike it in a relatively short amount of time. The view of Lake Louise was incredible. The teahouse was charming and served good food. It was expensive, but they are located out in the middle of nowhere. :) We enjoyed several hours at the teahouse and close by in the meadow watching the birds and the incredible view of the glaciers. I would gladly return.
