This lake is worth all the raves, though, all the lakes in the Banff area are amazing colors and are beautiful in their own way. We saw a bride and groom getting their photos taken and those photos are sure to be some of the...More

It's a magical place. One of the prettiest places I've ever seen. We got there around 9.30am. Parked at the self parking garage. If you dine the Fairmont hotel, you can get your parking ticket validated. If not parking is limited. Get there as early...More

Absoultly stunning but obviously very busy. We found the further you walked around Lake Louise the less busier it became. Still very much worth a visit.

Trafic was very busy from as early as 08:30 on a Wednesday morning is September. The lake is undoubtaby pretty and the walking good but not sure it is worth is. Hotels in area very expensive

Even when here was lot of people at lake louise, it was still peaceful to sit and relax. Me and my friends even did kayaking. It was super fun though it is little expensive. Must visit if you are travelling to Alberta.

Hi Annette ... There are canoe rentals at the boathouse on the west shore of the lake. However, life jackets are a must when you are canoeing, especially with children. It is a great experience, but I would ask at the... More
