Lake Louise is in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.  It might be the most popular lake to visit within the park.  There is a huge hotel right in front of the lake and a hike to a teahouse.

The hike to the teahouse is about an hour [maybe a 90 minute] hike.  It starts right beside the lake [if the hotel is to your back, the trail head is on the right side ofLake Louise].  It can be a strenuous hike for some people, so there is also an option of going to the top by horse.  The horses can make it about 95% of the way up, but then you need to walk the rest because there are stairs you must climb.  The teahouse sits adjacent to Lake Agnes which leads into a water fall.  It’s a nice relaxing atmosphere after an exhausting and long hike.  Be sure to bring cash, however, because the teahouse does not accept credit/debit cards.


If you don’t want to walk the 1.5 hours up the mountain, then you can go by horse!
