Lake Louise Christmas, Canada

I was sorry to say goodbye to our little cabin in the woods, but with the polar vortex closing in, was also ready for a hot bath and some room service!

So our next stop on our festive road-trip was just what the doctor ordered.

Everyone’s favourite,

The Post Hotel.

Surrounded by its snowy wonderland, it’s a haven of fluffy beds, cosy fireplaces and spa treatments.

We checked into our suite and barely left it for days!

Can you blame us with a bed like this…

…a view like this…

…and temps like these?

It was the perfect place to wake up on Christmas morning, snow falling outside and breakfast knocking at the door.

We ate at the fabulous restaurant, wallowed at the spa (the “Thai stem massage” is by far the best massage I’ve ever had. If you stay, book the “Temple Mountain Escape” and thank me later) and generally gave ourselves a thorough spoiling.

Which is really what Christmas is for, right?!

After spending a couple of days in a whirlwind of silky sheets & bubble baths, we eventually ventured outside.

To a bucket list spot,

Lake Louise!

In summer it glows a turquoise blue, and in winter turns into a playground for locals and visitors alike.

We frolicked with the crowds, and had a very n-ice time indeed.

Slipping and sliding across the makeshift ice rink, trying to ignore the groaning cracks beneath.

Locals came far better prepared.

So we set our sights on something us Brits excel at.

A spot of tea,

at The Fairmont.

A real feast, overlooking all the fun below.

Lake Louise is quite simply one of the most awe inspiring places you’ll ever visit.

If a little cold this time of year!

Having seen it in winter, it’s gone right to the top of my summer wish list.

Have you seen its emerald blue?
