A beautiful Lake to visit and see. So many worthy photo ops. Try and be there for sunrise or sunset! Definitely worth it. Peak season is very very busy, lots and lots of crowds but places you can get away from the crowds if you...More

We visited Lake Louise doting a holiday weekend and the parking was full and the overspill car park was 5km away. It was so busy that there was hardly standing room, with people taking turns to move in to a space to take a photo....More

We visited the Lake Louise end of March 2018. It was frozen back then. Stunning view, bit crowded though. We walked on top of it. Parking may also cramped at times. Summer and Winter should be a total different experience for this stunning lake. I...More

I didn't have any expectations for this lake. However, when I saw it thru the hotel restaurant, I realized I was in for a real treat! I'd never seen anything like it! This is a must see attraction!

We spend about 90 minutes walking around the lake. Most of it was still frozen but thawing out. There is plenty of parking.

There is very little open water right now but the view is great. I was surprised how many people were there at this time of year. I would hate to fight the traffic in prime tourist season.

A must-stop in the area. I suggest trekking around in the trails as there are good viewpoints. Better to visit int he summertime to really appreciate the color of the water.

Lake itself is very beautiful, with blue water, great mountain view, and boating facilities. There are a few trails around the lake, of different lengths, which are of easy to moderate difficulty, delights for any walking enthusiasts. To get parking, you have to

We hiked the Plain of the Six Glaciers and LOVED it. Be sure to take cash for the teahouse at the top. Check the hotel for a spa.
