Hidden gem is an understatement. You have to hike at least 3.5km one way on a tough trail, over rocks, snow and ice, and up exceptionally steep inclines to get here. The food and water is helicoptered in and everything served is made on site....More

Unwind with a Alberta tradition of visiting the tea house. The hike up will take about 90 minutes from the trail head.

A highlight of our two week tour of the Rockies but go prepared. The signs at the Lake Louise car parks tell you the walk is 6.6km but didn't prepare us for the height climbed on the trip. I would suggest packing water and sunscreen...More

Almost identical to Lake Agnes tea house. This is a very beautiful location and facility that provides tasty (chocolate cake!) treats and drinks at high prices. Definitely recommend enjoying the views and the treats here during a break in your hiking!

Wonderful homemade fare. Strange position as you can see it from the glacier, not the lake. Stangely , Our Waitress had weeping imbirtigo on her face- off putting to some but she was really lovely.

Plain of Six Glaciers is a great hike and the tea house adds a nice touch. We had the biscuits and tea which was $9. It tasted great. This incredible hike is the focus and the tea house is the bonus. The staff was friendly...More

Our son and his friend hiked to this tea house. My husband and myself went as far as lake Agnes which was enough of a hike for us. The boys were very happy that they continued to this next level. They say it is challenging...More

I understand it is normally scheduled to open the first weekend in June. However, there is a heavy snowpack this year, so the trail to the teahouse may still be snowed in. If not snowed in, certainly muddy. If yu decide... More
