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 tea house.
Lake Agnes Tea House
Lake Agnes Tea House was built in 1901 as a shelter for hikers and began serving tea in 1905. The hike to the tea house is about an hour [maybe a 90 minute] hike. It starts right beside the Lake Louise [if the hotel is to your back, the trail head is on the right side of Lake Louise] and ends at Lake Agnes. 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 tea house 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 tea house 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!
