Hiking Summer Outdoor Activities

Alberta has thousands of kilometres of hiking trails, whatever your flavour. From easy to pro, there’s a hike to get you to your happy place: mountains, grasslands, badlands and forests. Where should we start? ● Heli-hiking: Get to the top in seconds and start the hike on a high. With just a short helicopter flight, you'll see hidden alpine lakes and meadows. From there, the guided hike can be as chill or adventurous as you’d like. ● Winter hiking: Snowy trails transform Alberta’s best hikes into sparkling new terrain in the winter. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate and let the frosty air urge you up to the next frozen waterfall.

The Shadow Lake Lodge experience is a chance to disconnect and unwind, to venture out on the trail without getting in a vehicle, to be fed and nurtured without lifting a finger, and to relax without the distraction of electronics.

Lake Agnes

Lake Louise, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The 6.8 km circular trail to Lake Agnes is one of the most popular in Banff National Park. Gain 385 m on a well-maintained trail before arriving at Lake Agnes and its famed seasonal mountain teahouse. Savour lunch on the porch then walk around a beautiful tarn tucked below towering peaks. Note: This trail is subject to avalanche hazard from November through April. Enjoy one of the scenic, designated snowshoe trails nearby instead. In May and June conditions are variable. Check the Banff National Park Trail Report before departing.
