Distance: 10.3km/6.4mi | Gain: 521m/1,710ft
This breathtaking hike is accessed from the Lake Agnes teahouse trail. Through a series of switchbacks, we gradually rise in elevation and are rewarded with unbelievable views of alpine lakes and rich forest canopy. Once at the summit prepare for panoramic bird eye-views of not just beautiful Lake Louise, but of the Bow valley.

Distance: 11km/7mi | Gain: 335m/1,100ft
If you only had time for one hike in the Canadian Rockies, this would be it. This spectacular hike can be turned into a loop that includes walking up to Mirror Lake then traversing across the rarely traveled “Highline Trail.” After conquering the ascent, we arrive at the Tea House for fresh baked goods whilst looking out over the 6 Glaciers located at the back of Lake Louise.

Distance: 12 km/ 3.7mi | Gain: 550 m/ 1,800ft
At the exquisite setting of Helen Lake, we stop, relax and take in the alpine splendor. For those with a little extra energy, we can continue up to a high ridge crest for unobstructed 360 degree views. It is simply one of the best hikes in the park.

Distance: 10km/ 6mi | Gain: 1000m/ 3,300ft
Starting from the shore of Lake Louise, we hike up the moderately steep Saddleback Pass trail. At the pass we take a break and fuel up for the ascent to come. Numerous switchbacks deposit us on the summit for spectacular views in all directions.

Distance: 20 km/ 12.4 mi | Gain: 889 m/ 2,916ft
The Yoho Iceline trail is for the adventurous soul. This advanced full-day hike is the longest we have to offer for the athletic breed. With a quick elevation gain you reach the unparamounted mountain trails, jaw dropping waterfalls, and uniquely carved glacial peaks and valleys. Located in Yoho National Park, this trail is a 30-minute drive from Lake Louise. This trail is appropriately named “Yoho”, meaning “awe and wonder” in Cree.

Distance: 9 km / 5.2 mi | Gain: 365 m/ 1,197ft
Located in Kootenay National Park, this moderate hike is great for the whole family. Featuring classic mountain landscapes, the glacier trail is rich with  rejuvenating forestry after wildfires, and many waterfalls tucked within steep cliffs. Following the valley bottom, this trail offers hikers picturesque landscapes and showcases healthy, rejuvenating forests and ecosystems.
