Lake Louise

On our second full day in Banff, we went on a Discover Banff Tours trip to Lake Louise. The drive to Lake Louise was just as scenic and beautiful as Lake Louise itself. We had the greatest tour guide that stopped a couple times along the drive so that we could get some amazing pictures of the mountains and river.

Once we arrived at Lake Louise we went inside the Fairmont Chateau Hotel for a quick bite to eat before doing the lake walk. The inside of the hotel was absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed warming up with a cup of cocoa before hitting the trail.

The lake walk was like a winter wonderland. All the trees were perfectly coated with snow, the lake was frozen over, and the mountains were hidden behind a light fog. It was almost 2 miles each way and I got so many amazing pictures along the way! I even came across an adorable little woodpecker and of course he was my little model for a solid 10 minutes.

Lake Louise was our first adventure while we were in Banff and I thought it was going to be tough to beat, but I think we did beat it with another adventure that we did! Stay tuned for that post 😉


Stay freckled, ladies xoxo
