Discover Lake Louise activities in the fall

Lake Louise and the Banff National Park area offer excellent vacation opportunities all year round. In fact, there are so many Rockies vacation activities here that you may feel overwhelmed with all the choices! We try to split up our Lake Louise vacation travel guides in several ways to make it easy for you to plan. Below you’ll find info about Lake Louise activities in the fall.


See the brilliant golden larch trees near Agnes Lake. During September, the needles of the larch tree turn a stunning golden yellow and are quite picturesque next to a clear blue sky. The trees are most accessible from the Lake Louise area since they grow at the treeline level. Agnes Lake also features a tea house for the end of your adventure.

Take a quiet picnic on the shores of Ross Lake in the afternoon. You can purchase great picnic lunches from Laggan’s Deli and then walk the short path (less than two kilometers) to Ross Lake. Here you’ll have a good chance of seeing the many varieties of wildlife in the area. If you’re driving, park at the trailhead off the #1A Great Divide Highway.

Head on up to the Kicking Horse Campground in Yoho National Park and go for a hike on the “Walk in the Past Trail.” Grab a brochure from the Field Visitor Centre and launch your journey into the railway’s past. See the “big hill” and the final stop brings you to a narrow-gauge locomotive.


Sip some coffee at Laggan’s Deli or Bill Peyto’s Cafe (at the Canadian Alpine Centre and Youth Hostel, then take your warm mug upstairs at the cafe to enjoy the game room and a comfortable hang out area.

Go for a mountain bike ride around the Bow River Loop. Here you’ll find great views of the mountains all along this trail, especially Mt. Temple. Bike rentals are available at Wilson Mountain Sports.

If your about to leave and haven’t yet gotten to snap a photo of the local wildlife, head on over to the gift stores in the Chateau Lake Louise or Lake Louise Village for animal themed gifts. Some of the gifts even sponsor the protection of Canadian Rockies wildlife such as wolf packs.
