On the morning we were leaving, we decided to do a horseback riding tour from one end of the lake and back again. Mum and I both rode horses when we were younger, but hadn’t been on them in ages, so we were really looking forward to this little adventure.
We rode through the forest for a bit, which was lovely, but it wasn’t until we hit a clearing that we were totally in awe of where we were. I took the photo below on our way back to the Chateau, which you can see faintly in the centre background, and it shows just how dramatic the landscape is in this part of the country.
The lake was pristine and emerald, the trees looked like they were painted by Bob Ross of the Joy of Painting, and even the floodplain in the foreground was beautiful.
Looking back, I’m so glad we did this horseback riding tour. Not only did we both get the chance to relive our equestrian pasts, but we got the opportunity to see Lake Louise from a perspective that not everyone has the privilege of seeing.
