Canoeing on Lake Louise

The late Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau loved canoeing, famously commenting that it makes you 'a child of nature.''  Become a child yourself again (or bring the kids along) and paddle across world-famous Lake Louise. Life moves in perfect unison with the sights and sounds of the wild as you guide your bright red canoe across our brilliant blue-green waters toward the towering Victoria Glacier.  No previous experience required.
