Welcome to Lake Louise!

The turquoise waters of Lake Louise, in Alberta's Rockies, have been photographed so often now, the lake has become something of a cliche for mountain serenity. And yet, nothing quite prepares the visitor for the unearthly beauty of this alpine gem. The lake owes its colour to fine particles suspended in the glacier waters, but few visitors at the world famous Fairmount Chateau Lake Louise are thinking of hydrology as they look out over the waters from the luxury hotel. Downslope from the Chateau, the town of Lake Louise has its own charm. Small but well-appointed with restaurants, accommodation and stores, the townsite is an ideal getaway destination in summer when trail riding, hiking, rafting and mountain biking predominate.Wildlife is also a major draw with elk commonly sighted from the road and even the occasional bear. In winter, Lake Louise Ski Hill is the major attraction with its world-class ski runs. Visit the WorldWeb.com travel guides for Icefields Parkway, Jasper, BC's Rockies, and Banff for information about nearby destinations.
