It's a beautiful place to visit, but finding a parking spot is very difficult when we were there last summer. The best option or my recommendation is to go to the designated area where they provided a bus shuttle to go there. Too many tourists...More

Stayed at the Fairmont Lake Louise and the view from our room, 831, was amazing of the lake. We headed down to the lake and enjoyed a hot drink while walking around. Such a gorgeous spot.
