Banff – Canada – A Photo Blog
A Photo Blog from my trip to Banff, Canada
Lake Agnes is a small mountain lake in the Banff National Park of Alberta, Canada. It has a surface of 0.52 km² and is located approximately 3.5 km hiking distance from Lake Louise. A teahouse is situated along the eastern shore at an elevation of 2134 metres.
Open seasonally, this enduring, seat-yourself cafe offers lake views, light fare & a large tea menu. The Lake Agnes Tea House was originally built in 1901 by the Canadian Pacific Railway, as a refuge for hikers, and started serving tea in 1905. The log building was replaced in 1981 but still features the original windows, tables and chairs.
Lake Louise is a hamlet in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, known for its turquoise, glacier-fed lake ringed by high peaks and overlooked by a stately chateau. Hiking trails wind up to the Lake Agnes Tea House for bird’s-eye views.
There’s a canoe dock in summer, and a skating rink on the frozen lake in winter. The Lake Louise Ski Resort features a wildlife interpretive center at the top of a gondola.
