Lake Louise

Banff National Park 
Lake Louise, Alberta

Description provided by Editors

Lake Louise is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year. The vividly-coloured lake is surrounded by Rocky Mountain peaks with Chateau Lake Louise nestled on its banks, while the Village is a small hamlet at a lower elevation. The emerald colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake. Activities include hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing, dog sledding, fishing, and ice skating.
