Lake Louise Canadian Rockies

If it weren’t such a cliché, we’d say Lake Louise is like a postcard you can step right into. OK, we'll say it anyway. In winter, the frozen lake is packed with Canadians ice skating in their natural habitat. The hamlet of Lake Louise has provisions for whatever your adventure. ● Viewpoint: In summer, hike to the famous tea house, about a two-hour trip upwards. Lake Louise will look like a big turquoise cocktail. Expect to get approximately one billion photo ops and a fierce appetite en route. ● Sleep tight: Go full-mountain by staying in a nearby historic lodge and eating local game meats and seasonal Alberta vegetables paired with Canadian wines.
