Exploring Lake Louise

111 Lake Louise Drive - Search Nearby - Added by Seth Langbauer

Take in amazing lake views and stop to enjoy the local tea houses when in season.

Lake Louise is one of the most photographed lakes in Canada, with reason. Many tourist walk the paved path round and head home. They miss out though.

Hiking to the various tea houses surrounding the lake is a must. An easy 2 mile hike from the lake lies a tea house perched on a hill in a tight cirque of peaks. Mirror Lake, at the foot of the Big Beehive, shows reflections of the peaks that surround it.

Unfortunately during the fall, the tea houses are closed. But, this doesn't warrant skipping the hike. Pack your own tea, and enjoy the porch of the tea house with out the crowds.

The impressive peaks and lakes of the area are not to be missed. Worth every step of the hike you'll be blown away by the place.

Great views

This spot almost speaks for itself, but it's obviously worth going to see. We visited in late Winter and there were still plenty of people walking around. We stuck around for sunset and luckily only had a few people with us. If you're looking for isolation it will be difficult but nevertheless I highly recommend going to check out Lake Louise and the surrounding area.

Crowded But Beautiful

The lake was a brilliant blue and it was very scenic but a little crowded.

Instafamous Lake

This gorgeous turquoise blue lake begs to be photographed! It's a MUST to rent a canoe and feel the serenity of floating on the middle of the lake surrounded by mountains and forests. The hike is just challenging enough to get in a good workout and the teahouse at the top is the perfect reward.
