In 1890, Lake Louise was a wild outpost at the end of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Today this hamlet offers 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 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 Lake Shore Trail on the right for a spectacular winter experience
