Lake Louise and the Rocky Mountaineer Train Tour

Lake Louise Overview

Lake Louise, located in Banff National Park in Canada’s Rocky Mountains, is one of the most beautiful natural environments, and one of the most famous, in the world, and it would be a shame to visit the Canadian Rockies without adding Lake Louise to your itinerary.

And because Lake Louise is only 55 km (34 miles) from Banff, including it in your itinerary, even in a short one, is easy to do.

If you’re thinking about a Rocky Mountaineer train tour, you might want to make Lake Louise your first destination because once you get to Lake Louise, you are already in Banff National Park and only 35 miles from the town of Banff, the biggest town in the Canadian Rockies.

At Lake Louise, it’s all about the lake and the world renowned Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, a hotel the matches the splendor of its surroundings. The town of Lake Louise itself is tiny with a population of only 600 people compared to Banff’s 8350 year around inhabitants.

But once you arrive at Lake Louise and see the turquoise lake with its Victoria glacier in the distance, and the massive Chateau Lake Louise, you’ll definitely feel it deserves its reputation.
