HI-Lake Louise Alpine Centre

Location Information

At HI-Lake Louise Alpine Centre, you will have access to hundreds of kilometers of unparalleled hiking trails with an array of routes - from full day hikes that will take you to gem-like mountain lakes and to the top of rugged mountain peaks to beautiful evening walks along the Bow River. If you want to run the rapids of the Kicking Horse River we have trips leaving right from the hostel. There are tons of activities available to guests throughout the summer including horseback riding, biking, or simply relaxing on our outdoor patio with a cool beverage.

There is a lot to keep you busy through the winter. We are just minutes from Lake Louise Mountain Resort, which offers world class skiing and is a stop on the Men's and Women's World Cup Circuit. Here you'll find challenging chutes, vast open bowls, mogul fields and some of the best powder on the continent. Other winter activities include cross-country skiing, dogsledding, and ice climbing.
