Fall in Lake Louise

Fall is one of the best-kept secrets in Banff. When the sweater weather hits, pack up and head to the Rockies to discover Lake Louise. Experience the best of the mountains with much smaller crowds. Canoe on calm waters, hit the iconic larch trails, and enjoy dining al fresco on heated patios. Fall in love with Banff National Park in the autumn.

Lake Louise Weather in Fall (September – November):
Average Temperature: -10°C to 9°C (14°F to 48°F)
Typical Weather: Cool and clear with early snowfall starting in October

Fall Activities

The cooler weather is perfect for hiking in search of golden larches, while sunshine and calm waters make for incredible paddling on Canada’s most pristine glacier-fed lake. Many of the most popular activities run through the beginning of October, so fall is the perfect time to hit all your favourite spots.
