Lake Louise Accommodations – Skoki Lodge

Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Alberta

Lake Louise is not exactly a hidden gem of Banff. It is quite well known and the Lake itself remains one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen – especially in summer. Lake Louise is blessed with some of the most stunning surrounds in the world but without the relative hustle and bustle of Banff. For this reason, there are few better places to stay that Skoki Lodge. The eleven kilometer trail to the Skoki Valley makes it an ideal location for skiers in winter and hikers in summer.

Staying in a backcountry lodge is one of the best ways to really experience the Canadian Rockies.

From this wilderness, you will have easy access to stunning alpine lakes, breathtaking mountain ridges and absolute serenity. Though the Lake Louise ski area is still enjoying great snow and spring skiing, the summer flowers are just waiting to pop through. The colorful vegetation paints the landscape and combines beautifully with the typical cobalt blue skies of summer. Skoki Lodge was first built by Banff residents to cater for ski tourists. The main lodge still maintains a small library with books on local history and information about all of the surrounding flora.

Skoki is all about taking advantage of the simple calm things in life. Refreshing water, lemonade and herbal teas are the perfect remedy to rehydrate and refresh while chilling in the library with a book. The staff has a reputation as some of the most knowledgeable in Banff National Park. If the mood strikes to head off on another hike, they will share their vast knowledge with you to make sure you get the most out of it and some stunning photos to match. There are many hotels and lodges around Banff and Lake Louise but Skoki must take the prize for most peaceful.
