Lake Louise Hiking

Larch Valley

Lake Louise is probably the best place in the Canadian Rockies to be based for anyone interested in hiking. There is an excellent selection of hiking trails starting in the village or around Lake Louise itself, and a great deal of world class hiking is accessible without even getting in your car. One of the advantages of hiking in Lake Louise is that you are starting off already quite high in altitude, which means that you are soon above treeline, which is where you’ll find all the best views.
Classic Canadian Rockies hikes such as Lake Agnes Tea House, Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House, Paradise Valley and Larch Valley are all in the immediate Lake Louise area, while a short drive will open up all the amazing hiking trails along the Icefields Parkway and in Yoho National Park.
