Moraine Lake

TIME : 2016/2/19 4:02:46

The scenery will dazzle you long before you reach the spectacular deep-teal colored waters of Moraine Lake. The lake is set in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, and the narrow winding road leading to it offers views of these distant imposing summits. With little hustle or bustle and lots of beauty, many people prefer the more rugged and remote setting of Moraine Lake to Lake Louise.

There are some excellent day hikes from the lake, or rent a boat at the Moraine Lake Boathouse and paddle through the glacier-fed waters.

Moraine Lake Rd and its facilities are open from June to early October.
