This is a gorgeous place! There is plenty to do in the winter. Even if you aren't one for snow activities, the views from the Chateau Fairmount are spectacular.

Lake Louise is beautiful, and if you've traveled all the way to Canada to see it, well then you must go! But go further than just the front of the lake. Truly get outside and enjoy the surroundings.

Enjoyed lunch at the Fairmont Lake Louise and took a beautiful stroll on Lake Louise. You are surrounded by beautiful mountains and trees. In the winter it was fun to see the ice sculptures too.

This is classic Canada and in the Banff national park. Picturesque year round but in my opinion, the best scenery in the winter. Not crowded at all this time of year. Enjoy the many activities but plan ahead. Stay at the resort.

Superb location, especially in the winter. The feeling of walking to the far end of the Lake on frozen ice and snow was amazing. Far less tourists than in the summer. Walked up to Mirror Lake on snow shoes, great fun

The lake is wonderful. Unfortunately, there are too many people.Along lake is the way that attracts for the beautiful walk. However, you can also go to long walk to visit other smaller lakes.
