Lake Louise, Alberta — The Canadian Prairies
Early visitors came to Lake Louise by rail or on horseback, until the road from Banff opened in the 1920s. Travelers in winter explored on snowshoes, and in the 1930s, the skiers arrived. The Lake Louise area has become a mecca for climbers, walkers, and tourists, summer and winter. Options for your visit? Endless information, maps, brochures, permits, washrooms, up-to-date trail, road and weather reports are available year around at the Lake Louise Visitor Centre. Begin your visit here, and discover that there’s more to Lake Louise than the lake!
