Lake Louise Vacation Events
Just about everyone taking a vacation to the Rockies has it in their mind to pay a visit to this gem. Besides being a classic hiking, sightseeing and photography spot, its got great amenities, including some of the greatest accommodations on offer in the Rockies. It’s also renowned for its great skiing, it is also home to many other activities and events. Speaking of events and activities, here’s some of our favorite for a Lake Louise vacation.
Christmas: Obviously this is a big day just about everywhere when the big fat bearded man (at least in most of the English-speaking world) drops down your chimney with presents. If Santa brought you to Lake Louise this year, you’re already in good shape. Lake Louise has special celebrations to make this festive time even more festive. Among many other things, there is the Parade of Lights, photos with Santa and also skiing with Santa for the little ones.
Canada Day: Oh, how I wish it could be Canada day every day. The fun of looking through your wardrobe for any red and white clothes, frantically cutting maples into everything you find… actually, that does describe my typical day. You’ll find there’s lots to do on Canada Day, if you haven’t yet been. There are pancakes, parades, sidewalk art, competitions, live music…and drinking!
Ice, Ice Baby: This is an ice sculpture competition event that takes place at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise on the last weekend of January every year. The cool part about this (excuse the pun) is that the incredible statues remain on display until they sadly melt in spring.
The Banff Lake Louise Winter Festival: Trust me when I say this is something to look forward to. There are so many activities to do such as skiing, hiking and dog sledding that it will make your head spin. The nighttime entertainment gets out of control as well when the nightclubs organize special nights. Not to be missed!
