Lake Louise is famous for good reason. It is a brilliantly-colored glacier-fed lake in the middle of the Canadian Rockies, surrounded by mountains and glaciers. Full of tourist opportunities, there is a stunning luxury chateaux at one end (complete with daily alphorn performances), non-motorized boat rentals on the lake, and hiking trails around and beyond the lake. The details of this lake are truly best told in pictures (below).
