Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House
This is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic hikes in the Rockies. For its relatively short distance the terrain and views seen from this hike are amazing. Follow the shore line of Lake Louise to the trail head below the cliffs at the end of the Lake (look up for climbers). Views of Victoria Glacier, moraine fields and the lake itself are stunning. The teahouse is an extra bonus, built in 1924 this lovely rustic log building serves a great cup of tea and finger food.
