Located in the heart of a wilderness that has become an iconic symbol of Canadian identity, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is the jewel in the crown of Banff National Park. The magical romance of this sweeping landscape is just under three hours’ drive from Calgary airport, making it the ideal escape for anyone looking for outdoor activities, like skiing and hiking, in dramatic, boundless scenery. I’m always looking or the spa.
An old-world luxury punctuated by contemporary design gives our suite a cozy yet undeniably elegant feel. From our window we enjoy utterly breathtaking views across Lake Louise and the iconic Rocky Mountains beyond. Inside, furnishings are rich and grand with comfy seating areas and huge beds that are perfect for resting muscles, tired from a day of frolicking in the powder soft snow and whathaveyou.
WHY I LIKE IT
Spending summer days by the crystal waters of the lake, fishing and canoeing, then experience the beautiful forest by horseback or on foot a reality. As temperatures drop and Lake Louise transforms into a fantastic winter wonderland be sure to ski those snowy slopes or embark on a breath-taking heli-tour over the incredible mountain peaks. What more can you ask for in one place?
