Discover Lake Louise Winter Tour

Where: Banff, Alberta
Price for: 1 Participant
Spend a day immersed in the rugged landscape and natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies on the full day Discover Lake Louise Winter Tour. Nestled in the heart of Banff National Park, Lake Louise offers some of the finest hiking and site-seeing in the world.

A majestic place.

Lake Louise is a majestic place that deserves time to fully appreciate. This 7-hour tour allows you just over 4 hours of free time at Lake Louise.  You can use this time to borrow snowshoes and explore the many trails or enjoy a leisurely lunch in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise (not included).  There are a lot of snow shoeing trails around the lake. Your guide will bring snowshoes for you to use and instruct you on how to use them correctly. Then you are free to roam around and explore the area.

There are lots of winter activities to do once you get to Lake Louise. If snowshoeing isn’t your thing, you can hire some ice skates or cross country skis from the Chateau. You can book a horse drawn sleigh ride. You can explore even further and join a dogsled tour that runs along the Continental Divide to British Columbia (advance bookings required). 

Tour highlights:

  • Snowshoeing on Lake Louise - your guide will give you the option to try snowshoeing.
  • Bow Valley Parkway – relax and enjoy the view along the scenic highway to Lake Louise, great for wildlife viewing.
  • Lake Louise - take a stroll on the lakeshore, try snowshoeing and/or visit the Chateau Lake Louise.
