Spring in the Rockies is an untold secret, or at least, that is what it feels like. It is a time when Mother Nature starts to wake up after a rejuvenating winter, the snow melts away, hibernating animals come out of their winter slumber. And of course, fewer visitors means you often have the shores of Lake Louise all to yourself! It’s the perfect time to refresh and reset before the exciting summer months ahead. We are here to give you our ideal 3-day itinerary to spend in Lake Louise this spring, read on for more.
Upon arrival in Lake Louise, drop your bags and get outside to give your legs a stretch, your body and mind will thank you for it! Strolling along the Lakeshore Trail, you will take in the magnitude of the surrounding snow topped mountains and picturesque vistas. After freshening up, we recommend you start your evening with a handcrafted cocktail at Fairview Bar & Restaurant’s art deco inspired bar before sampling some of Alberta’s finest beef for a succulent dinner. Finish off your evening under the twinkle of starlight by the lakefront campfire.
Fuel your day of exploration with our energizing breakfast buffet in Louiza, and get ready to hike the Johnston Canyon Icefalls with one of our Mountain Adventure Guides. Here you can wander into the majestic canyon, listen to the swirling creek below, and marvel at the massive frozen waterfalls. Arrive back to the hotel in time for a longstanding Fairmont tradition: afternoon tea. Delight yourself in soft and fluffy scones accompanied by English-inspired sandwiches whilst sipping on a comforting cup of Lot 35 tea. Next, you have earned a little “me time” pampering. Head to the Fairmont Spa and let your massage therapist melt away any tension with our Hiker’s Foot Therapy treatment, helping to restore the natural flow of energy in the body after your active morning! Finish your day with an intimate dinner at Walliser Stube. Have fun dunking into a bubbly pot of melted cheese or opt for the bone-in pork schnitzel, either way, you’ve earned the calories to fully embrace this homage to our Swiss guiding heritage.
