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

Visited mid May and lake was still frozen over but still nice views, Lake Louise area as a whole was a one horse town with lots of over priced places to eat, only visit here as a day trip and move on to somewhere better

We went the beginning of May and everything was frozen but beautiful. It was a nice day and you could walk around much of the trail but not all of it. You could tell where the ie skating happened. Could still sit on the benches...More

We visited Lake Louise yesterday evening after biking/walking/slogging up the Tramline Trail. We again very much enjoyed the lake. We love the trails connecting the lake to town, which get you away from the crowds.

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.
