Mountains:

We hiked to the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse, which is listed as Moderate: 5.3 km one way; 365 m elevation gain; 4 hour round trip, and then added on a side trip to Abbot Pass Viewpoint: 1.5 km one way; 50 m elevation gain.

As the name suggests, the hike to the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House offers incredible views of the glaciers and mountains that surround Lake Louise. Built by the Canadian Pacific Railway between 1924 and 1927, this tea house was originally constructed to house mountaineers en route to the popular objectives of Mts. Victoria and Lefroy. Hikers today can enjoy a wonderful menu of fresh lemonade, tea, pie, scones and more.
