Lake Louise

Cartoon-like blue waters and absolutely staggering mountain ranges make this place romantic, so long as you and your lover are into hiking. Best experienced with no one else around, so make your way along the trails!

Firmly one of Canada’s most iconic sights, Lake Louise is sure to leave you mesmerized with its emerald green waters set to the backdrop of chiseled peaks and thick pine trees. This glacier-fed lake is the crown jewel of Banff National Park and presents a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the great outdoors with wildlife sightings ranging from elk and osprey to grizzly bears. Beyond enjoying the view, Lake Louise is also a popular spot for its year-round activities that include hiking trails, scattered teahouses, and paddling in the summer, whereas the winter brings about world-class skiing, sleigh rides, and dog sledding. If you’re looking to find the best national parks in Canada, this one is a must-see.
