Lake Louise, AB

Written by Dustin Manley

The emerald of Banff National Park. Lake Louise's stunning glacial waters surrounded by snow-capped peaks and glaciers paint an indelible mark of Canadian iconography, leaving little to the imagination as to why it is the showcase of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, Lake Louise is one of the most popular tourist and sporting destinations in Canada. The world-famous turquoise colour of the lake is a result of rock flour carried in by the melt-water of the surrounding glaciers.
