It is nice little hike to see the glacier . It is not really hard or long but if you are in a bad shape be prepared to get tired. Make sure to bring camera , bottle of water and very comfortable shoes ! The view is sure amazing and worth the hike .

If you are looking at Lake Louise, you are looking at Victoria Glacier on the mountains behind the lake. Its melting runoff feeds Lake Louise, appropriately, as Queen Victoria was the mother of HRH Princess Louise. This glacier has retreated a lot in the last 20 years.

Tshirts changed to fleeces but sun glasses stay put. Great experience to see melting ice and avalanches at the same time. surreal to think you are walking on ice that may not be there tomorrow!

When visiting Lake Louise and looking out over the lake, make sure you look up to see what remains of Victoria Glacier. The views are spectacular. While we were visiting the lake was still frozen and the mountains were covered in snow. Just a magical place.
