Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Festive Guide


Play a game of Bavarian Curling with the iconic view of Lake Louise as your backdrop or sit at our lakefront campfire and toast the perfect golden-brown S’more, finish your day by watching the sunset as you sip a signature festive cocktail at our iconic Ice Bar. For the kids, we have a vast list of activities to get them excited for the big day. Decorate a gingerbread house while listening to classic Christmas songs, then test that knowledge in a special holiday edition of Name That Tune, write and mail out your letter to Santa in one of Santa’s Workshops and then get the chance to meet the man himself as he pulls up to the Chateau Lake Louise on a sleigh.


Enjoy a Christmas meal that will not soon be forgotten!

For lunch, join us in one of our three iconic restaurants, which have no shortage of views, and enjoy our history inspired, locally sourced menus. For a winter treat, head over to our outdoor Ice Bar where we will be serving festive cocktails as well as maple syrup lollipops.
