Explore Alberta: Winter at Lake Louise, Alberta Canada

Welcome to Lake Louise!

It’s me again, and I am continuing my winter adventure with you  guys. So sit tight, relax and bundle up as I show you around my Winter trip to Lake Louise. Let’s get started!

Lake Louise, Alberta Canada

Last week, I shared my Sulphur Mountain adventure in Banff National Park. If you missed that post, check it out and be amazed in the beauty of Banff during winter. This post is more like a continuation of that post because the logical way to do when you visit Banff is to also visit Lake Louise to make all the traveling worth it. It’s like hitting 2 birds in one stone. We started from Calgary which is about 1 1/2 hour drive to Banff and then from Banff to Lake Louise is another 45 minutes. It is best to allocate whole day to do both attraction, that way you will have enough time to walk around and check the place.

Just like Banff, I’ve been to Lake Louise both summer and winter season. Although Lake Louise is more famous and talked about during summer because of its unbelievable turquoise water and canoe dock, it was a pleasant and a fantastic experience to also visit this place during winter and see the lake turned into an ice skating rink.


Lake Louise is a glacial lake located within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is considered as top tourist attraction and a must see place to visit when in Alberta. During winter, the lake can be used for ice fishing and ice skating while surrounding areas offers dog sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice climbing. Although we did not do any of this during our visit, I still enjoyed going there just to experience of it looks like during winter.


The entire  lake was totally frozen, and it was hard to believe that it was the same turquoise lake that I saw when I visited this place during summer. I cannot even believe that I was standing, walking and running in the middle of the lake. It was truly a fun and memorable experience that I wouldn’t mind doing again.

If you feel like staying longer, maybe an overnight trip, Fairmont Hotel is right in front of the majestic Lake Louise. I can only imagine how expensive it could be, but hey, If you have the budget then go splurge, pamper and treat yourself to a winter escapade that you will never forget. Until my next travel adventure, this is SweetNSpicy your travel buddy!
