Last week I made my way to Lake Louise in British Columbia, Canada. I skied at the ski resort opposite in the winter but did not manage to make it over to the lake itself after car trouble. When I returned to Canada for the summer I made it a priority to make my way to visit it before I left again. You can see why.
Lake Louise sits in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, in between Banff and Jasper on highway 93. It is a simply jaw dropping view that is hard to believe. The lake sits surrounded by tall mountains either side, with a valley open to the view of Victoria Glacier.
You can rent out 3 man canoes for $45 per hour which is well worth doing. You can also see the Lake Louise Ski Resort on the opposite side of the valley. In the winter the blue-green lake is completely frozen over and surrounded by ice sculptures so you get a completely different experience.
