Any visit to Banff National Park would be incomplete without a stop at Lake Louise. In fact, you could spend your whole luxury holiday here. Lake Louise is known internationally for its exquisite emerald colour, and mirror-like surface. In this region you’ll also find the glittering Victoria Glacier and towering snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains. With sweeping vistas and breathtaking views, this is one beautiful place. There are many ways to explore the lake. You can rent a kayak or canoe to paddle to hidden coves, hike through vast stretches of forest along the lake shores, or voyage to the nearby Moraine Lake with the extremely unique Tower of Babel formation. Come winter, the landscape is covered with snow, and the lake freezes over, creating a magical winter wonderland. During this time of year, you can skate across the lake, go for sleigh rides or try dog sledding, and even hit the slopes at Lake Louise Ski Resort. Base yourself in the delightful Lake Louise hamlet to fully explore the region. This quaint country town only has a population of one thousand people, making it the perfect place to enjoy modern comforts, and the serenity of the surrounds, without feeling like you're battling the crowds. You’ll find a shopping centre here with a grocery store, bakery, deli, and restaurant.
