Points of Interest

Lake Louise Overflow Parking

When you get close to Lake Louise, look for electronic signs stating the parking availability up at the Lake itself. If overflow parking is suggested, take note of the parking lot on your left about 6km before town. Shuttles pick up here regularly to take travelers to the Lake. 


This drive follows the valley path of the Bow River, so enjoy driving by the mountain peaks on your right - Castle Mountain, Protection Mountain and Armour Peak. 


Food & Drink

There are no services between Stanley Glacier Trailhead and Lake Louise Village. However, if you're in need of a snack when you arrive there are some great cafes and restaurants within walking distance of the Village.


Trailhead Cafe

This small cafe serves up hot drinks and many delicious meals, including gourmet breakfast sandwiches, pastries, & even caribou stew! Seating is limited so be prepared to take your goods and sit in the courtyard to eat.


Laggan's Mountain Bakery & Cafe

This location has a huge display of pastries, brownies and cookies but also serves up plenty of standard cafe fare. There's a good number of seats inside, but it can be crowded on a busy (or rainy) day.


Bill Peyto's Cafe

This restaurant flies under the radar in town because it's hidden in the local HI Lake Louise Alpine center, which also serves as a large hostel. It's a great place for a dinner meal to be surrounded by other travelers from all over the world who are staying at the hostel. You'll also have a chance to learn all about the incredible hostel and cabin systems that are present across Canada in both urban and rural areas.
