Lake Louise

(4.6/5 based on 13,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: nature, historic sites, trails
Idyllic Lake Louise offers quick access the eponymous lake, arguably the biggest natural attraction in Alberta. In a mountainous area offering priceless views and plenty of fresh air, most Lake Louise vacations incorporate cross-country and heli skiing with ice fishing, sledding, climbing, and skating. Popular in winter, the area attracts almost as many visitors in the warmer months with its nature trails, lakes, and challenging rock faces. Lake Louise also serves as a gateway to Banff National Park, home to glaciers, ice fields, coniferous forests, and sparkling waterways. The World Heritage-listed landscape surrounding this town also remains one of the best places to see grizzly bears in their natural environment, as well as to observe a star-spangled night sky unspoiled by light pollution.
