The famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel

As one of the most beautiful places in a Canadian country brimming with natural Canadian beauty, Banff, Alberta, Canada stands out. Set in the heart of the breathtaking Canadian Rockies, Banff, Canada, is an exceptionally beautiful place to visit in Canada on vacation, especially by train coming across Canada. It's hard to imagine a better summer vacation than one which provides a leisurely and comfortable railway journey to a vacation destination which offers welcome relief from the summer heat and some of the most striking Canadian scenery to be found anywhere on the planet.

Given the beauty of its surroundings, Banff, Canada has long been a popular tourist destination for vacation packages and trips not only in the summer, but all year round. Two of the Canada-Pacific Railway's Grand Hotels can be found in the Banff, Alberta, Canada area: the Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise. Originally built for the comfort of well-to-do travelers on Canadian train vacations, Banff, AB, Canada's Chateau Lake Louise and its sister hotel in the Canadian area rapidly became Canadian attractions in their own right.

Situated in the Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, the Chateau Lake Louise is located right on the shores of the lake whose name this luxurious Grand Hotel bears. The bright green waters of the lake perennially delight visitors to the hotel on their Canadian vacation and the beautiful Canadian surroundings of the Chateau are a nature lover's dream come to life: a spectacular view of the Victoria glacier can be had from the hotel and the area abounds in vacation opportunities for outdoor recreation tours and trips including hiking and canoeing.

A 1982 winterization has allowed the Chateau Lake Louise to operate through the entire year, letting visitors on vacation to Canada take advantage of the Banff, Canada's area's potential for winter sports and winter recreational tours and trips. Whether you choose to take Canadian train tours with Banff, Canada as your destination for your Canadian vacation in the summer or winter, the Chateau Lake Louise offers accommodations with world class comfort and amenities for your Canadian vacation.

There's plenty to keep you entertained on your trips in Banff, Alberta, Canada and there's no better way to arrive than by rail through the Canadian Rockies. The only sights more spectacular than those you'll see along the way across Canada by rail await you upon your arrival in Banff, Canada.

When you're not outdoors enjoying the natural beauty of the Banff, Canada area, canoeing or ice skating on Lake Louise, the Chateau Lake Louise offers eight different options for fine dining. The hotel also has a full service spa on location and a wide range of amenities to ensure that your Canadian vacation is one whose luxury you'll always remember. Where else in the world can you relax and enjoy afternoon tea in the shadow of a glacier? This is a Canadian experience you can have only at the Chateau Lake Louise.

We can help you find the right train vacation package for your family vacation, romantic getaways, trips across Canada and more. Choose from our package vacation deals or get in touch with us to plan your own customized, affordable tour or vacation across Canada by train.
