What to see in Canada
Tourist attractions Lake Louise
Lake Louise is located in Alberta. It is a glacial lake located just five kilometres from the town of the same name. Lake Louise takes its name in honour of Princess Louise Carolina Alberta, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883. The colour of the lake is due to the rock flour carried into the lake by the melting of the nearby Lefroy glacier and the two Victoria glaciers., which dominate the lake.
