Living in Calgary puts you at the doorstep of some of the world's most incredible scenery. A moderate hike of about 2 hours has you enjoying tea and scones at the teahouse

Such a wonderful hike to both tea houses. Service was quite quick despite it being quite crowded. We were here in 1973 and they remain quite the same. Beautiful scenery!!!

We began our hike around the lakeshore of Lake Louise, and before we knew it, we were well on our way to the teahouse. It was more grueling for my husband than myself, but I was enjoying the challenge. We saw the helicopter fly in...More

We are not sure why the chocolate cake was so good. Was it the hike up the hill, was it the elevation, was it the view. Whatever it was, we loved it! The tea house is primitive and they were super busy even on a...More

We did both trails on separate days and thought the hike to Lake Agnes took the less effort of the two. I think you would find the hike to Lake Agnes Teahouse to be the simpler of the two and it would take about an hour and... More
Hi, just wondering if by any chance the Tea House might be open by mid May and if the hike will be possible? I've read that the Mirror/Agnes trail will be the best bet. Thanks.
