Thirty minutes from Banff townsite, Lake Louise is known as the hiking capital of Canada, with dozens of marked trailheads nearby. Trails range from short, easy, scenic loops to more ambitious climbs. Take a comfortable stroll around the lake and you’ll see why it’s called the Jewel of the Rockies. Hike to an old-fashioned tea house or ride a gondola and watch for grizzly bears far below.
