So beautiful. Pricey to rent a canoe. A lot of tourists, it was packed. Bring runners to walk on the trail if you want.

Lake Louise is an outstanding gorgeous site to see. The Lake backed by the magnificent Rocky Mountains with the glacier on the side of it is just awesome. Since our visit was in July- 'summer vacation' time for families with children- it was very crowded!...More

This lake has one of the best views I have ever seen and also the best hiking trips we did in Canada. The lake is truly amazing, but very cold. Anyone traveling to Banff or Alberta should visit!

Lake Louise views are beautiful. Worth the travels and fighting the crowds. Getting to lake early is well advised. Both Lake Louise and Lake Moraine are amazing and must sees!

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
