Hiking Summer Outdoor Activities

Alberta’s infinite variety of landscapes can satisfy any hiker’s wanderlust. Thousands of kilometres of trails beckon for all abilities, from short easy rambles to classic hikes and multi-day treks. Epic scenery awaits in our protected parks and wildlands. Try heli-hiking in our Canadian Rockies backcountry and discover secluded alpine lakes and mountain meadows where wildflowers and wildlife abounds. Explore the mysterious Canadian Badlands and witness the work of eons of erosion that sculpted this strangely compelling terrain. Discover the silence of a northern boreal forest. Wander through grasslands stretching to the horizon. Our temperate climate is ideal for hiking, from spring through autumn.

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.
