When you go to Lake Louise, one of the first hikes people gravitate to is the one that goes around the lake—the beginnings of the Plain of Six Glaciers hike. It’s a pretty long hike if you go all the way around, but an easy one with no elevation gain. However, if you have the time and energy, the hike leading up Fairview Mountain to this view is definitely worth your while.
It’s a steep climb at first but the effort is well worth the breathtaking scenery you get of the mountain ranges and of Lake Louise. It’s a great way to spend a day in the area if you have that extra bit of time. If you have even more time on your hands, you can continue to the peak of Fairview Mountain where you’ll get even more spectacular views of Lake Louise and surrounding areas.
This spectacular view makes Chateau Lake Louise look quite majestic in its own way. Surrounded by greenery and mountain ranges for as far as the eye can see, this is one hike that will be sure to make you want to come back for more.
