Canoeing & Kayaking Summer Outdoor Activities

The rowing machine at the gym? It’s nothing like that. Swap the euro-dance hits with soft and rippling waves in the wake of a beaver. That’s more like it. Canoeing was commuting before Canada was a thing. And if you want something more high-energy, kayaking and rafting is like a real-life log ride down the river. ● Do this: There are travellers, and then there are voyageurs. Book a half-day canoe trip on Jasper’s Pyramid Lake. Epic views, no experience needed. ● Whitewater: Getting drenched to the skin doesn't get any more exciting. Navigate the cool waters of a mountain river with an experienced guide.

Lake Louise

Lake Louise, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

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.
