<1>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Lake Louise were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lake Louise) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Lake Louise. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Lake LouiseOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lake Louise. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.4255, Longitude: -116.1772    
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<5>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Lake Louise), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
