To Lake Louise

2002 and 2003 were declared by the United Nations as the Year of the Mountains and Year of the Water respectively, to signify the importance of mountain habitat and water as a precious resource.

There is no better place to experience both, than along the Icefield Parkway between Saskatchewan River Crossing and the Lake Louise area, which is a very scenic 90 minute drive from Aurum Lodge and makes for another great day trip from our location. Again, sights and hiking trails abound including our favourites Mistaya Canyon, Cirque Lake, Bow Glacier Falls and Helen Lake / Dolomite Pass. All of these are generally less busy than the trails around Lake Louise itself.
