Lake Louise Area Info

The village of Lake Louise, Alberta, located within Banff National Park, is about a 45-minute drive east of our River Base. Lake Louise has been a top-tier destination since the 1880s and is known for being Canada’s highest permanent settlement at an elevation of 1,536m. The village offers a wide range of activities beyond white water rafting in Lake Louise to help you connect with the outdoors. Discover some of our favourite outdoor activities and places to stay.

Activities in Lake Louise, AB

Lake Louise: Seeing the iconic view of Lake Louise is a ‘must’ for many, along with the historic Chateau Lake Louise. For an easy walk, follow the path behind the Canoe Docks up to a lovely viewpoint. If time allows, you can rent a canoe to explore around the lake! Or, wander the shores of the Lake or head up to the Lake Agnes Tea House or Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House for tasty snacks and unbeatable views of both lakes, the Chateau and surrounding mountains.


In the Village of Lake Louise, a small assortment of food and retail shops satisfy all sorts of appetites. If in the mood for a great breakfast, lunch or simply a latte, we highly recommend the Trailhead Café (the Trailhead Wrap is our favourite!). Laggan’s Bakery, just next door, offers plenty of tasty and quick options for breakfast to late lunch.
