Camping at Lake Louise

During my trip through West Canada, I decided the best way to experience Banff and Lake Louise was by sleeping in a tent, in the middle of nature.

And that was one of the best decisions of my life.

Don’t take me wrong, I love hostels, and meeting new people, and going out to explore cities with them, but it’s also very important for me once in a while to spend a few days on my own, doing things at my own pace.

I stayed at Lake Louise Campground, which was fenced to prevent bear visits, so I was a little more peaceful at night.


In the morning, I took a 25-minute walk to the “city” of Lake Louise–a few shops and shuttles leading you to the main attractions around–through a little wood that followed the crystal-clear, icy river in the picture above.

Then I hopped in one of the free shuttles as early as I could (trying to avoid the crowds) to go to Lake Louise or Lake Lorraine. Lots of people asked me which one I prefer, and I still honestly can’t answer that question.

Which one is your favorite?

  1. God, it’s so hard to choose one! I don’t know…. Maybe Lake Lorraine? All of the pictures are so gorgeous. Do you have an Instagram? If not, you should definitely start one with all of these travel pictures.
