The resort is located in South-Western Canada, Alberta in Banff National Park, 55 km West of the town of Banff and 177 km from the city of calgary. Its history began in 1882, when Tom Wilson, one of the experts who built the Canadian Pacific Railway in the area of the village of Laggan (the former name of the station Lake Louise), once discovered a beautiful lake surrounded by the majestic Rocky mountains, with snow-capped peaks and bright green forest on the picturesque slopes. He later recalled: “for Some time we sat silently, unable to look away from the brilliant beauty of the landscape that unfolded in sparkling glacier”.
The first discoverer called it Emerald lake, but then, in 1884, it was renamed lake Louise in honor of Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, daughter of Queen Victoria and wife of Governor-General of the canadian colonies of great Britain. Today lake Louise and its beautiful surroundings — this is part of the unique Banff National Park, rich in flora and fauna, as well as a luxury ski resort, where there are many attractions and entertainment that attract tourists from around the world.
