Alberta Hotel Reservations
One of the most beautiful glacial lakes in North America is located in Banff National Park, Canada's oldest National Park. Lake Louise, Canada's "Diamond in the Wilderness", is a true gem in Southern Alberta. This blue-green colored lake, measuring 1.2 miles in length, is located at the base of Victoria Glacier north of Banff.
The color of the water is a result of the rock flour in the water that runs into the lake, from Victoria Glacier. The lake was named after Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Louise Caroline Alberta.
Recreational enthusiasts love spending time at this breath-taking lake. Whether you ride your mountain bike, saddle up on horseback or lace up your shoes for hiking, there are plenty of trails around the lake for a fun day outside. Some of the more popular trails are Saddleback Pass, Lake Agnes, Little Beehive, Fairview Mountain, Devils Thumb and Mirror Lake.
Winter-time fun abounds at nearby Lake Louise Ski Area, where skiers and snowboarders challenge themselves on some of the Canadian Rockies' best slopes.
