Backpack or a bag of some sort to carry all your trinkets and treasures (or more practically, your snacks, water bottle, portable speaker, hat, an extra pair of socks and a few of the other things on this list).
2. Gear for your mountaineering activities and adventures
In Lake Louise, it’s easy to fill your itinerary with hiking, climbing, kayaking and canoeing, biking, skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, skating, and so much more. If you prefer to pack light, check out our friends at Wilson Mountain Sports for all your gear rental needs like hiking poles, skates, skis, bikes, and more
3. The right footwear
We’ve seen people on the trails in ballet flats, yes, really! Ouch. To make sure you can run away from Bigfoot (or just walk on great mountain trails), you’ll need great footwear for the times you’ll come across mud, gravel, snow, ice, tree roots, and more. If bigger elevations are on your bucket-list, we strongly recommend hiking boots that include ankle support for rocky terrain.)
