After our moderately wonderful drive via the Icefields Parkway and exploring the sweetness that’s Abraham Lake, we made our approach again to Banff to seize our stuff from the resort and head over to our remaining cease of the journey – Lake Louise.
This time, we’d be staying on the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and I’d been enthusiastic about this one, I’ve gotta admit.
Ever since we first visited Lake Louise, truly – scratch that – it was nicely earlier than, I believe it was once I even first noticed photographs from right here, I simply knew I needed to keep right here sooner or later and eventually we received our plans collectively to take action.
With a view overlooking Lake Louise from excessive up within the resort, it was the whole lot I’d hoped it might be.
The candy treats left for us within the rooms additionally helped an awesome deal too.
Factor is although, an enormous a part of why I wished to remain right here was to benefit from Lake Louise and with that, we headed out to discover the lake some extra!
What was meant to be a fast jaunt round Lake Louise quickly became a correct stroll to the very finish of the lake (it was nearly like I had a degree to show to myself) to see what was on the different finish.
It was simply so attractive being right here and figuring out we had been in no hurry to move again to our resort, we simply lazily took within the sheer fantastic thing about this wonderful place! It’s so attractive, isn’t it?
Finally, although, we determined to move again to the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise wanting to make it to dinner on time.
We’d dined on the Fairview Bar and Restaurant the 12 months earlier than (so price it, positively suggest it – particularly so with that view of the lake which matches down a deal with along with your meal) and determined to go for one thing totally different this time and head to Alpine Social, a comparatively new opening on the Fairmont.
The vibe is extra relaxed at Alpine Social and with beers and cocktails to kick issues off, we received ourselves some tuna and scallops to begin.
I went for the cod for mains, with Lloyd choosing the burger.
I went for doughnuts for my dessert with a trio of dipping sauces (sooooo good) whereas Lloyd went for a chocolatey nutty brownie for his. (Undecided what the precise identify of his was – I wasn’t paying an excessive amount of consideration to his when my doughnuts arrived).
With that, we determined to name it a day, heading off to the spa for like some much-appreciated chill time.
Lake Louise and certainly, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise has so far confirmed to be the whole lot I’d been hoping it might be and I used to be happy to bits about that.
