Flat paved trail beside Lake Louise, this is awe inspiring. It was cloudy over the snowy peaks at the end of the trail and the clouds muted the light for a great shot. The picture of the Chateau from the far end is framed nicely by the surrounding mountains. Go past the lake for more adventure.

A very easy and beautiful walk along the lake shore. It was snowing almost constantly but you’re protected from any wind and it’s a beautiful way to spend a winter afternoon. Dogs are allowed which makes for a nice atmosphere as everyone greets each other. Great views of the Chateau and the mountain peaks.

A good hike that's works as a great introduction to the beauty of Lake Louise. Nothing challenging about the hike, but it's a great way to see the lake in under 30 minutes.

This lakeshore trail is an out and back trail. You cannot go entirely around the lake. The trail is a flat and easy one. It is really stunning to see the lake from different viewpoints because the color and amount of ice varied significantly from the side near the Fairmont. Where the ice was melted, you could see mountains reflected in the clear waters. At the shores, you could see just how clear the water was. At the end of the trail starts the Plain of Six Glaciers trail which was not recommended due to avalanche danger and snowy/icy conditions. I think I might have gone still were I not traveling solo.

Very cool during the winter and not so crowded. There was a nice sleigh ride you could do as well, and ice skating, and you can walk on the frozen lake. Very pretty and magical during the winter. I couldn't imagine what it would be like during the summer with the crowds. I would probably do a hard surrounding hike to get away from people.
