The Viewpoint is an independent bookstore in Lake Louise, located in the Samson Mall at the community’s core. Lake Louise is in Banff National Park and is one of Alberta’s most popular and beautiful destinations for both local and international tourism. The Viewpoint serves these visitors to its tiny, bustling hamlet with guidebooks, trail maps, coffee table photography books, local history, and books by local authors, as well as art prints, postcards, and more.
They also have an open archway inside that welcomes customers through to their partner-store, Pipestone Quarry, where visitors will find rocks, minerals, fossils, and books on the fascinating local geology of the region. Anyone lucky enough to find themselves in the area, who is looking to learn more about the Canadian Rockies and have a fun, local browsing experience, will find something illuminating at The Viewpoint.
