Plain of Six Glaciers is an almost 14-km trail located behind Lake Louise in Alberta. This lake is usually the starting point for a hiking excursion that takes us to a high viewpoint called Plain of Six Glaciers. As its name implies, from up there we can contemplate at least 6 glacial balconies in a breathtaking panoramic scenery.

The last meters before reaching the Plain of Six Glaciers imply a steep slope full of large rocks and tree roots. But with a lot of patience and after overcoming a final section that gains height with a zigzag path, you will reach the famous Tea House. This place is still 1.4 km away from the goal but here you will begin to feel the end is near.
June to August
The summers are pleasant and the winters totally snowy. The average annual temperature ranges between -15 °C and 22 °C.
As in the rest of Canada, the easiest way to get there is by car. You can rent one in any of the main cities. Calgary Airport is the most practical option, due to the short distance. There are free parking spots almost everywhere in Banff National Park, even around Lake Louise.
