My wife and I were in awe of the beauty of Lake Louise as viewed from the Fairmount Hotel at the Lake. The scene is mesmerizing as two massive mountains seemingly come together bound at the bottom by the hugeness and beauty of the Lake....More

The pictures you see of the lake have not been enhanced, the Lake is actually that colour. Beautiful

Finding a parking spot around Lake Louise can be a bit hard, since there are so many tourists. Once you've made it through the first, really touristic, part and start your hike (there are several hikes around Lake Louise) it gets less and less crowdy....More

It was my first time out west and I was told that Lake Louise was a must see, so we braced ourselves and ventured over, even on the August long weekend. It was very well run despite the crowds that were visiting due to Canada...More

Come for the view, spend the day to appreciate it all. Canoeing in the lake was a real highlight. Hiking is beautiful. Eat at the lakeside restaurant to soak it all in. Don't rush the time... Let the history of the place envelope you.
