Ice Skating on Lake Louise
There's perhaps no other feeling like gliding smoothly across the surface of a frozen lake. Ice skating in the wilderness is a quintessentially Canadian activity, and the iconic Lake Louise is a bucket-list skating destination.
With each stride, feel the blades beneath your feet carry you further onto the ice and explore the subtle frozen ripples and flowers of frost that bloom there. Don't forget to pause and soak in the spirit of the peaks that encircle the lake, catching and bouncing back the echoes of skaters in a unique natural symphony.
