In 1890, Lake Louise was a wild outpost at the end of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Today this hamlet, lake and its surrounding area offer some of the finest hiking, skiing and sightseeing in the world. The lake, with its turquoise hue and glacial backdrop, is by far the area's most popular destination. Summer offers iconic photography, lakeshore strolls, hiking, climbing, canoeing and horseback riding. Winter offers Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and skating in a magical, snowy wonderland. Tips: The lake is ice-free by mid-June. From November through April enjoy a designated snowshoe trail or walk the Lakeshore Trail.

Canoes, rowing boats and paddle boats can be rented at the lake.
