Description

A vast frozen lake surrounded by sparkling snow and an amphitheatre of snow-dusted mountain peaks – Lake Louise is postcard-perfect in winter.

Lake Louise transforms into a real life snow globe in the winter that has to be seen to be believed. On this full day tour you’ll have plenty of time to explore on your own: borrow our snowshoes and explore the many trails, wander the shoreline and take in the iconic views, and warm up with a hot drink or a leisurely lunch at the elegant Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel.

To make the most of your visit, rent a pair of ice skates and skate on the frozen lake – an authentic Canadian experience! Horse drawn sleigh rides run daily along the lakeside trail in traditionally styled sleighs with cozy upholstered seats and blankets to keep you warm. Lake Louise is also the best location to take in some dogsledding (advanced bookings required).

This tour allows you just over four hours of free time at Lake Louise, come and discover this winter wonderland for yourself.
