Lake Louise. A beautiful, yet, quiet resort perfect for hiking with the family. This little hamlet is just off in the Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta. It is known to have such a unique view of the glacier-like mountains that border the bright turquoise lake that is lit up by the sunlight seeping between the mountains.
There are hiking trails that surround the mountain leading to an amazing bird’s-eye view of the whole resort at the peak.
Lake Louise offers many great activities that will surely bring fun to the family and is definitely one of the places you should add to your bucket list!
1. Driving through the Bow Valley Parkway
This route is an alternative road the connects Banff and Lake Louise. Known to be a scenic route, it is also only 30-miles long. This route presents much wildlife- such as deer, black bears, sheep, goats, and the like- as the route doesn’t have any fences nor barriers guarding the road (so always be cautious!). Since this is a scenic route, there are bound to be many spots perfect for taking photos. The best spots to stop along the way are 1) Storm Mountain Lookout; 2) Johnston Canyon; 3) Castle Mountain Lookout; and 4) Muleshoe. Although all of these places are spread out within the 30-mile drive, you might take longer to arrive at Lake Louise due to the shock and awe from this route.
