The lake can't possibly be that blue? Believe it. One of the all time classic views in all of Canada if this place doesn't take your breath away you should have your head examined.

I have both hiked here and ski'd here. I visited the tea house and had a wonderful cup of tea while enjoying picturesque views. There is hiking for most levels of abilities...my 60 year old mom and 4 kids made it to the teahouse and back:). The tea wasn't cheap but was worth it. My experience skiing was great; my last trip out was for my stag party...great runs, great snow, some fun terrain on the backside, and great company of course.

On a nice summer day Lake Louise is the perfect place to take some magnificent photos. If you are a keen hiker make sure you hike the Plain of Six Glaciers/Lake Agnes loop. Stop at the Plain of Six Glaciers tea house for lunch - a place where staff have to hike in and out with the food/rubbish and everything is cooked by propane stove as there is no electricity.

Ah, picture postcard perfect at Lake Louise. I stayed in the hikers' hostel here - comfy enough - then spent a few days hiking into and out from wonderful Skokie Lodge. Highly recommended - but watch out for the bears. Wear your bear bells. How do you tell grizzly scat? It's the one with the bells in it. (Just kidding). Beautiful country.

The lake itself is an unreal shade of turquoise. When you see pics of it, you think it must be photoshopped or maybe the photographer just happened to capture it in some ethereal light. But that's the way it always looks - and it's gorgeous. Most people walk around it, or look at it from a vantage point, but depending on when you plan to be there, you can rent a canoe and go out on the lake; which is a super cool way to view the passing scenery. The canoe rentals are available from the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

Breathtaking views, phenomenal hikes for every difficulty level and a European feel (in a good way!) overall. Food is an issue so stock up before coming from Jasper or Banff or be willing to pay a lot for mediocre meals.
