Literally steps away from the shores of the gorgeous Lake Louise the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise allows guests instant access to some of the most beautiful scenery.

Enjoy a hike up to a tea house, canoe the lake, snowshoe, skate on the ice rink complete with ice castle around Christmas time or stay tucked inside and enjoy the views.

Perfect for elopements and grand weddings.

The Lakeview Terrace offers a stunning backdrop with Victoria Glacier. There is a public pathway in between the lake and the terrace, therefore, it's not suitable for couples who prefer a private ceremony.

The Victoria Ballroom.

I love the privacy of the Victoria Terrace at The Chateau Lake Louise. It offers gorgeous views overlooking Lake Louise.

I find winter particularly magical at Lake Louise. You can take a horse drawn sleigh ride around the lake to a frozen waterfall, ice skate on the frozen Lake Louise with a giant ice castle, snowshoe and go dog sledding. It tends to be quieter in the winter making it even more of a peaceful retreat.

The Victoria Ballroom's recent renovation is stunning and shows off the views beautifully. Decor by Lynn Fletcher Weddings.

You can now arrange for a private guided canoe ride on your wedding day that will allow you to take photos in the canoe without life jackets on.
