All you have to do is choose!
Planning a Romantic Getaway to Lake Louise?
Stay: Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is arguably the most romantically situated mountain basecamp in the world. Positioned lakeside and facing the Victoria Glacier the views are beyond compare, and in winter, the frozen lake transforms into an incredible ice rink. Book the above package as it includes complimentary snowshoes.
Explore: The Chateau’s Mountain Adventure Guides have extraordinary knowledge of the local trails and offer a variety of guided activities; but for romance, you’ll want to experience the Night Owl Snowshoe. Departing after dark, you’ll journey into the woods on snowshoes, discover the stillness of night and spy a few of the nocturnal inhabitants. If the skies are clear, the guides will take the time to show you some of the great constellations that wheel overhead such as, Cassiopeia, the Great Bear and Orion the Hunter.
Play: Spend your day on the world’s most spectacular ice rink, complete with an ice castle to skate through. Truly a bucket-list experience, the rink is framed by the Victoria Glacier and mountains on either side. Should you score bluebird skies, you’ll want to spend the whole day out there. And should you need to rest, you can enjoy hot chocolate next to the fire pit.
Dine: Whether taking in the views of the spectacular frozen lake and the glacier beyond, indulging in the seasonal Rocky Mountain Wild–inspired menus, or simply enjoying a classic cocktail in the beautifully curated art deco space, Fairview Bar provides a refined spot to savor your romantic alpine getaway. Alternatively, tuck yourselves into a dark corner at the Walliser Stube and share and indulgent fondue experience.
