3 Tips for Visiting Lake Louise

Lake Louise is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Canada. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your trip.

1. Visit Moraine Lake

Moraine Lake is less than a 10-minute drive from Lake Louise and well worth the detour. Be sure to visit before 9 am to get a parking spot. Once the small parking lot is full, you'll have to park in overflow and hop on a shuttle to see the lake. 

Canoes are available for rent; $95/hour.

2. Don't pay for parking at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

There is a free government parking lot located at Lake Louise. When you see the Fairmont Hotel, take a left and there will be a free parking lot with plenty of space. Lake Louise is a short 5-10 minute walk away.

Parking at the Fairmont is $33.
