Well worth a visit to see. A bit crowded but early morning or evening is the best time to visit. Worth checking Lake Moraine as well, I think better than Louise personally.

This lake has a breathe taking view of mountain and marble water. You can't stop looking at the view. great for taking beautiful photos. Has a trail that goes along side of the lake and continues up the hill and forest.

Beautiful lake, with sidewalk and benches. It's a large lake with a large hotel and lots of tourists. It is worth seeing and hiking the trails. I went to mirror lake then Agnes lake to the little tea house. All uphill!

The views here are, at worst, stunning!! We only had a few hours here however it was 100% worth the time. We managed to have lunch in the Fairmont Hotel too. Sit outside if you can.

A lovely lake and if you have time, walk down the side of the lake to get away from the camera clicking crowds.

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
