Lake Louise Holidays

Reference WW37901

Book any of our Lake Louise holidays and experience the breath-taking natural beauty, world-class hospitality and the most luxury accommodation; this is Lake Louise, and the locals can’t wait to welcome you with open arms.

This popular Alberta hamlet is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains and was built around a stunning turquoise lake – what more could you ask for in a holiday destination? Positioned approximately 2 hours from Calgary and just 30 minutes from the mountain hamlet of Banff, this pristine wonderland has never been more accessible.

Located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Banff National Park, Lake Louise has the ability to enchant and entertain in the middle of 6000 acres of wilderness. Elevated at 1600 metres, the entire region is a natural wonder in itself, and is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, from grizzly bears to bald eagles. From wildlife watching experiences to outdoor adventures in the mountains, Banff National Park will allow you to feel truly immersed in nature.

As Lake Louise is nestled high in the Canadian Rockies, it can snow at any time of the year – which means this is the ideal destination to try out some winter sports! From skiing to snowboarding, ice-climbing to tubing, there is something to appeal to all tastes. If you would like to explore at a slightly slower pace, why not take a horse-drawn sleigh ride around the outside of the frozen lake? You can even glide across the lake in the winter when it transforms into one of Canada’s largest natural ice rinks.

The warmer weather opens up a plethora of opportunities to experience Lake in all its glory. Make sure you pack your camera so you can capture the perfect shot of alpine meadows full of mountain flora, wildlife meandering around the locality and, of course, countless images of the iconic turquoise lake from all angles. Hike through varying and ever-changing landscapes or take a ride on the world-famous gondola for views you will never forget.

Lake Louise is home to all the facilities that visitors could ever ask for. Dine with a mountain vista in one of the many fine-dining establishments shop in some of Alberta’s most delightful boutiques and, of course, stay in one of the luxurious hotels that Lake Louise is famous for.; the world is your oyster from the moment you arrive.

With your own personal advisor, low deposits and holiday payment plans, then now is the time to embark on that holiday of a lifetime.

Highlights

Lake Louise to Jasper Tour

This morning you will depart Lake Louise and drive through the “heart” of the Canadian Rockies to Jasper along the world-famous Icefields Parkway. Rushing waterfalls, crystal-clear rivers, emerald lakes, alpine meadows and snow-capped peaks create an ever-changing montage of mountain wilderness. The entire day is spent in the majesty of Canada’s two most famous National Parks, Banff and Jasper. Stops will be made at Crowfoot Glacier, Bow Lake, Peyto Lake and the Weeping Wall before arriving at the Athabasca Glacier and Columbia Icefield to visit the chalet and allow time to enjoy an Ice Explorer ride and the Glacier Skywalk (optional) on the Glacier. From the Chalet the parkway descends Tangle Ridge and follows the Athabasca River, which begins as melt water from the Athabasca Glacier. We then stop at the Athabasca Falls, where the boiling waters of the river plunge into a chasm gouged out of the valley floor. Your exciting day ends in the quaint townsite of Jasper.

Icefields Parkway Discovery Lake Louise to Jasper

Depart Lake Louise and journey along The Icefields Parkway, Canada’s most scenic mountain roadway. This is the route to over one hundred visible glaciers, turquoise lakes, and rushing waterfalls. The highlight of this tour is the Columbia Icefield Ice Explorer Glacier Tour on an Ice Explorer, for a “Once in a life time trip” on to the 1000-foot deep Athabasca Glacier. Following lunch (included). Experience Jasper National Park’s newest attraction, the Glacier Skywalk. Step out onto a glass-floored observation platform extending 30 metres out over the Sunwapta Valley for an unobstructed view of the surrounding glaciers. Take a stroll around Athabasca Falls before your late afternoon arrival into Jasper.

Mountain Lakes & Waterfalls

The tour begins with a visit to Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. This is one of the great photo opportunities in the Canadian Rockies. Cross the Great Divide into Yoho National Park via the scenic Kicking Horse Pass. Takakkaw Falls, in the magnificent Yoho Valley, will be the final stop before beginning the trek back to Lake Louise.
