Trafic was very busy from as early as 08:30 on a Wednesday morning is September. The lake is undoubtaby pretty and the walking good but not sure it is worth is. Hotels in area very expensive

Even when here was lot of people at lake louise, it was still peaceful to sit and relax. Me and my friends even did kayaking. It was super fun though it is little expensive. Must visit if you are travelling to Alberta.

You cannot visit the Rockies without seeing Lake Louise. Arrive for sunrise, it is the best time. There will be parking available if you are early.

What has happened to this site? We were staying at Deer Lodge so could walk to the lake. Very busy, so we were advised to take the shuttle to Lake Moraine. This didn't work out owing to bad weather and after 2 hours, we ended...More

Hi Annette ... There are canoe rentals at the boathouse on the west shore of the lake. However, life jackets are a must when you are canoeing, especially with children. It is a great experience, but I would ask at the... More
