One thing that everyone experiences on a Lake Louise holiday is the magnificent scenery; located in the heart of the stunning and historic Banff National Park, Lake Louise offers breath-taking views with snow-capped mountains as far as the eye can see. Why not take a Canadian walking holiday during the summer months, with beautiful vistas and the chance to spot some of the local wildlife!
In Winter Lake Louise is all about ski - as part of the Ski Big 3 you can enjoy the Lake Louise Ski Area, Mt Norquay and Sunshine Village all with one lift ticket! The Lake Louise Ski Area is perfect for those who want to ski as a family or in a group with beginner, intermediate and expert runs leading off every chair – and it’s a real joy to ski with such a scenic backdrop. Mt Norquay is a small, friendly resort close to the town of Banff – there are excellent beginner areas for anyone new to skiing. Sunshine Village is a real experience, you feel like you are high up in the clouds! You can ski two provinces, both Alberta and British Columbia, and with endless spectacular views of the Rockies, Sunshine Village is a must for anyone visiting the Lake Louise area.
The town of Lake Louise itself is a picture-postcard perfect Rocky Mountain town! With a small selection of restaurants, bars and shops you can enjoy the peacefulness of the town after a long day on the slopes. If you want a wider selection of restaurants or fancy a fun-filled night out, then head to the exciting town of Banff – only a short 45 minute drive away.
Lake Louise is a unique offering for whatever you are looking for on your holiday to Canada. Wherever you choose to ski across the vast Big 3 you will always be surrounded by the stunning Rocky Mountains.
