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.


Paddle on the beautiful and always breath-taking Lake Louise. Enjoy stunning scenery, aquamarine water and the dramatic peaks of the Victoria Glacier. Canoe rentals are available at the boathouse, located on the west shore of the lake. Each canoe may be rented at an hourly rate and can hold either three adults or two adults and two small children under 55 pounds (25 kilograms) each.

Multiple daily departures - please see Concierge.

Please note the sunrise canoe experience is no longer available this season.

After an early morning wake-up call, venture outside for an unforgettable opportunity to canoe on Lake Louise at the break of dawn. Enjoy the stillness of the water, the crispness of the air, and the great photo opportunity this excursion affords. Enjoy your pre-ordered continental breakfast on the boat as you watch the rest of the day awaken.

DEPARTURE: 5:30 am
*Departure time may vary. Please check with the Concierge. Reservations
required by 8:00 pm the day prior.


Canoes are a historic way in which to experience the lake as they have been on the water for over a century. Paddle on the sparkling emerald surface of Lake Louise from the comfort of our authentic 26’ cedar strip group canoes. As you journey across the lake, your guide will share local stories about the wildlife, the indigenous people and the early explorers.
Multiple daily departures - please see Concierge.
