FAIRMONT CHATEAU LAKE LOUISE, CANADA
Welcome to Canada’s most iconic hotel. The one that sits at the top of many people’s ‘must stay’ bucket lists and has graced more magazine covers than we can count. It’s not hard to see why it is so popular. It sits at the edge of the beautiful Lake Louise – a body of water that’s turquoise in the summer and iced over throughout the winter and early spring – and is dwarfed by its surrounding mountain landscapes which seem almost unreal. As well as its unbeatable natural setting, the hotel also has a rich history and heritage as the hotel has welcomed mountaineers, outdoor adventurers, sightseers and even royalty through its doors since 1890.
