HI Lake Louise Alpine Centre

203 Village Road

There may be nothing more iconic than Lake Louise—a stunning blue glacier lake backed by mountains in Banff National Park. HI Lake Louise is just down the road from the lake in a post and beam chalet with a variety of room options and its own licensed restaurant. Visit the lake, hike the local trails or ski at a world-class resort in the winter (five minutes by car).
