Lake Louise — Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Lake Louise… where to even start?

The crystal-clear, turquoise blue water accented by the picturesque mountains in the background offers a sight to how amazing nature really is. Located in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada, Lake Louise is surely not a spot to miss.

With the high attendance of daily visitors, Lake Louise is one of the main lakes known in Banff National Park. Besides the beautiful photo opportunities, there is also the ability to go rent kayaks and go kayaking out on the lake. Guided and unguided tours are available and also half an hour and hour rentals as well.

It’s hard to explain how beautiful this place is in words, so here are some pictures I took while visiting Lake Louise. Enjoy!

FUN FACT: Lake Louise was the third name given to this lake. First was named Ho-Run-Num-Nay, which is translated to lake of little fishes. Secondly named Emerald Lake by a Canadian railway worker, Tom Wilson, in 1882. Two years later it was changed to it’s third and (hopefully) final name, Lake Louise, after the daughter of Queen Victoria.

If Lake Louise isn’t added to your bucket list of places, then I’d suggest you take a pen and add it to the list.

Friendly reminder.. leave no trace. This is a beautiful park that has thrived on it’s natural environment, let’s leave it that way and enjoy what nature has presented to us.
