  • We started at Lake Louise to our Lake Agnes Tea House Trail and had a great ascent to Lake Agnes on a well-fortified path. Arrived at Lake Agnes, enjoy mountains and the lake ;-)

  • Lake Agnes has amazing views of the valley below and of the peaks around it. It's absolutely worth the hike up the mountain to get to it.  more »

  • A great one hour hike brings you up to this incredible destination 350 m above Lake Louise. Plenty of hiking options from here including the Little Beehive, the summit of Mount St. Piran, the top of the Big Beehive and for those with lots of gas in the tank, a second Tea House above the Plain of the Six Glacier. I have a special place in my heart for this spot as this is the spot I proposed to my wife.
  • Another beautiful lake and a nice hike to get there. A little difficult but not too bad. I thought it was the most populated trail in the area.
