Explore Lake Louise
The Rockies’ epic wilderness playground is at our doorstep: hike, ski, paddle, sightsee and spot grizzlies. Explore Lake Louise and the activities the resort and national park have to offer. Cradled in one of the world’s oldest national parks, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is your basecamp to Bucket List outdoor adventure. It’s a place that has captured the imagination of artists, alpinists and intrepid travelers for more than 100 years. And picture-perfect Lake Louise, its iridescent turquoise waters reflecting the steep mountains and jagged glacier, is the crown jewel of Banff National Park.
But clichés just don’t do justice to one of the most staggeringly beautiful wild places on the planet. The Chateau affords guests the full wilderness experience — from a luxury mountain resort. Mother Nature in all her glory is literally right outside our door — beckoning you to explore, reflect, connect and replenish.

Explore the best Lake Louise has to offer
While Lake Louise is famed for its hiking trails, alpine teahouses and wildlife — in particular bears, big horn sheep and mountain goats — photography hobbyists and hardcore mountaineers alike are equally rewarded. Spend time in the stylish and lively mountain town of Banff, ski or snowboard at three top resorts, snowshoe or trek to the serenity of seven crystalline lakes. Anyone who experiences Lake Louise, whether from the lobby or top of the peak, can’t help but be moved by the soul-stirring grandeur.
