The viewing at the lake is spectacular, the blue colour of the lake renders beautiful pictures. Great place for a short hike too.

I visited Bow Lake first which was EXTREMELY beautiful & peaceful, so then when I went to the famous Lake Louise I was taken aback by how incredibly expensive, loud & busy the surrounds were! The smoke haze from the fires didn't help and I...More

A very busy place! Picture perfect views. We caught the shuttle bus from the village and walked back along the creek to the village.

We got there early in the morning and parking was already full, so we took the shuttle from the overflow parking and it worked out nicely. The lake is nice, the trails are easy accessible and it is definitely worth the trip.

One of the best lake I ever seen. His spectacular colors are very strange and beautiful. We walked since the big beehive and was very cool see it from there. One day I would like to come here again. It was a fantastic day!

Pictures really do not reflect the beauty of this lake. Nice visit, but it was so crowded. However, I'm glad that we were on a tour bus.

Do not believe this Lake is crowded in August. 'Crowded' does not begin to describe the madhouse we found here. Central Park in New York City on a Weekend is more peaceful. The famous view in front of the famous hotel is now a sea...More

Hi Annette ... There are canoe rentals at the boathouse on the west shore of the lake. However, life jackets are a must when you are canoeing, especially with children. It is a great experience, but I would ask at the... More
