The small but well appointed village of Lake Louise offers a range of travel amenities, fabulous dining experiences, local shops and unique accommodations. This quaint village is the ideal destination to escape the crowds this summer with plenty of recreational activities and sightseeing opportunities to enjoy.
The lake is widely known for its spectacular turquoise colour and beautiful mountain scenery. Lake Louise owes its vibrant colour to fine rock particles called rock flour, created by the shifting of the Victoria Glacier. These particles are suspended in the glacier water and reflect the bright turquoise colour.
With so many things to do in Lake Louise, it is renowned as an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with trail riding, hiking, canoeing, rafting and mountain biking in the summer and in winter months the Lake Louise ski resort is the major attraction with its world-class ski runs and fresh powder slopes! The perfect retreat for a relaxing vacation or an outdoor adventure!
