Lake Louise is special for so many reasons.
The colour – incomparable! The glaciers – jaw-dropping! But one thing really sets this little mountain hamlet apart – the wild locals you might encounter on your adventures around the lake.
Banff National Park is home to 53 species of mammals, according to Parks Canada. “The incredible diversity of wildlife is a reflection of the wide range of habitats found in the park due to variations in elevation, climate, and plant communities.”
Lake Louise is no exception. On any given day, on any given mountain adventure, you’re bound to bump into at least one of these local species. Each animal is unique, and while an encounter can be an exciting experience, it’s very important to respect these animals by giving them space to roam without being disturbed. After all, you’re in their backyard!
