Owner description: Beautiful lake surrounded by woods and hiking trails.
Reviewed April 4, 2018

We went in winter, well April but it was -2 degrees. We had an amazing time. Our kids rented skates and hockey sticks and enjoyed more than 2 hours on the ice in the shadow of the incredible mountains that surround the lake. We also hiked across the frozen lake to a frozen waterfall (it takes about an hour there and back). The views are breathtaking. There is also a sleigh ride (horse-drawn sleigh) that passes on the side of the lake to the waterfall if you can't hike that far.

The hotel is also beautiful (the Fairmont), if you'd like to warm up in the lobby or peruse their shops. We did not eat in the restaurant but it was a beautiful dining room overlooking the lake.

We went there last September 2017 (Family) and we were mesmerized of the beauty of the lake. No entrance fee which was great! The lake is just breathtaking and we took loads of photos. Good for family trip - adults and kids can enjoy! Will take a trip there again this summer!

The drive to Lake Louise is worth it on it's own. It is also amazing once you get there and see the quant, rustic feel of this town. A must do!

This is one of the stars of the National Parks...an iconic lake. Once you visit, you will recognize this image forever...no matter what the season...wherever you are in the world. Don't miss the view or the all-round activities on and around the lake.

This is one of the Rockies’ precious jewels you must not miss when visiting Banff National Park. During the winter and early spring you can walk on the frozen lake, skate or even play an ice hockey game with friends. A super picturesque spot, where you can even hop on a 2 horse riding sleigh for a mini lake tour. This place is simply a winter wonderland!
