The snow has melted, the sun is shining and the local wildlife are wandering around after a long, cold winter – this can only mean one thing. Summer in the Canadian Rockies is almost here!
There are so many incredible summer activities in Lake Louise. Canoeing on glacier-fed lakes, scenic drives, patio hopping from Lakeview Lounge to Alpine Social, the list goes on. But hiking has to top the list as the most rewarding and enjoyable summer activities in the Rockies. Waking up with the sun, grabbing your mountain-top lunch from the deli, and hitting the heal-toe express straight to the peak of a mountain or wandering through a valley that has views for days.
Lake Louise is the perfect base camp for your hiking adventures because there are so many trails right at our doorstep. Looking for a new peak to conquer? I don’t know if you’ve seen our backyard… but we have a few of those! Interested in a hike up to an alpine tea house? We have two! Would you rather take a peaceful walk into a valley with minimal elevation gain? Lake Louise has got you covered.
