Goodness, this place is stunning. The crystal clear water, beautiful mountains, and serene environment make it a must-see in the Canadian Rockies! Those who are fans of scenery will find it easy to pass time just admiring the unbelievably beautiful views of the lake and surrounding area. It's also less touristy than Lake Louise, so it beats it for those... More

This is the picture postcard lake of all lakes in this region of extraordinary beauty. It's so beautiful that the Canadians put it on one of their monetary bills.

Moraine Lake is beyond words beautiful. It is worth the side trip as in so many respects, it is even more beautiful than Lake Louise and that is saying something. The lake is gem-like in color, the stunning craggy peaks tower over the lake in very close proximity to the lake and visitors center. The lake being so near and... More

But we'll try! You can walk up the steep path to the top of the great rock near Moraine Lake Lodge, which looks straight down this idyllic lake and mountain scene. If you stay there, do it often, because it changes as the light or shifts. Then enjoy the walk a couple of kilometres along the lake shore, or if... More

Try the paradise valley hike. It is easy, and there is a lake at the end. You need to wait for at least a group of six at the trail head.

We visited Moraine Lake after a long day at Lake Louise. Wish we could have spent more time there, the scenery was just stunning.

This lake is so beautiful and the best way to see it is to hike up the boulders and see it from the top. On a clear day the water seems like a mirror and has amazing color. The hike takes about 10 minutes, also you can rent a canoe here.

try checking it out from the top of the mountain at Lake Louise. Spectacular! I don't know what took my breath away more…the skiing or the view!
