Read from the Book

When yousee the first flush of morning sun hit Victoria Glacier, and the impossiblysteep northern face of Mount Victoria reflected in the sparkling, emerald-greenwaters of Lake Louise, you’ll understand why this scene is regarded as one ofthe world’s most beautiful. Beyond the lakeshore, the sublime beauty continuesat Moraine Lake and along hiking trails that lace the region and lead to remotealpine lakes, rustic tea houses, and lofty viewpoints. Whilethese are the elements that the region is best known for, Lake Louise also hasa colourful and intriguing human history that began when the Canadian PacificRailway first laid a rail line through the valley in 1883.
