Lake Louise throughout the year
Lake Louise is your base camp to mountain adventure in every season. Winter transforms the emerald waters of Lake Louise into a grand outdoor skating rink. Spring offers an extended ski & ride season into May and begins the late-spring great lake thaw. Summer showcases endless trails for hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, and canoeing on the shimmering lake. Fall marks the start of larch season, a prime opportunity to see the Alberta larch trees display brilliant shades of gold. Discover our Lake Louise inspiration guide to make the most of each season.
Summer Rocky Mountain activities await, just steps from our door. Hike to one of two historical alpine tea houses for lunch or conquer Mount Fairview before sunset. Try to spot bears, big horn sheep and mountain goats, and learn all about their natural environment from the Mountain Adventure Guides. Canoe around Lake Louise, cycle the Icefields Parkway or join a high-adrenalin whitewater rafting tour.Discover Summer
