Lake Louise/Chateau Lake Louise., Banff National Park: 46 reviews and 78 photos
Lake Louise itself lies a few hundred metres above the Bow Valley floor. The lake is surrouned by several mountains, a glacier, and of course the Chateau Lake Louise. There are several other hotels near the lake, and very fine dining can be had without having to drive down to the valley.
Drive up the winding road from the town to stunning Chateau Lake Louise, which towers over the lake, but is in turn dwarfed by the surrounding mountains and glaciers. This 2.4 kilometre (1.5 mile) long lake, at 1,731 m (5,660 ft) is over 200 metres above the Bow River, is nestled between three stunning mountains: Mount Victoria (with the glacier), Mount St. Piran (on the right) and Fairview Mountain (on the left).
Address: 36 Miles or 56 Kilometers from Banff
