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.

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Mountain Adventure program

Lake Louise, Alberta

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is known for its luxury accommodations, but the resort has rugged roots. The first chalet on the lake was built in 1890 to host outdoor enthusiasts; nine years later, the chalet hired professional Swiss mountain guides to keep guests safe. Until 1954, expert guides have taught generations of people how to climb safely in the Canadian Rockies. In 1997, the hotel decided to resurrect this tradition and began the Mountain Heritage Program, offering guided adventures through the area for all skill levels. Enjoy a leisurely hike to the historic Tea House or a full-day hike along one of the area’s many hiking and climbing routes. The program operates in both summer and winter.
