Stand in awe at the sight of the green-blue waters of Lake Louise, in front of the towering Victoria Glacier.

Ski at this internationally renowned destination, or cross-country ski, hike, horseback ride or bike Lake Louise’s world-class trails. Whitewater rafting on four nearby rivers is also popular with the thrill-seeking tourist.

For a peaceful escape, check out Lake Louise, a crystal blue-green lake set against the backdrop of the Victoria Glacier located 183 km (114 mi.) northwest of Calgary. Standing at the lakeside, its colour seems almost impossibly teal. When in Lake Louise a visit to the Lake Agnes Tea House is a must.

Lake Louise offers a variety of activities including; horseback riding, white-water rafting, hiking, sleigh rides, gondola rides, skating, canoeing, snowshoeing, and of course, skiing at the famous Lake Louise Ski Resort.
