We traveled up to Moraine Lake. The last time here, there was no lodge... Now its much busier and parking was at a premium,(free) We decided to walk around for a short time, and enjoyed the area. Another future hiking destination though. Very nice and very beautiful!

One beautiful lake after another in this area it is difficult to compare which one is more stunning. I hate to sound cliche once again but there is such a wow factor when viewing this lake and the surrounding mountains. It is a popular and busy spot.

Another beautiful azure blue lake situated a short 15-20 minutes up a mountain road from the town of Lake Louise. Surrounded by mountain peaks, peaceful and spectacular. There is dining available at Moraine Lake Lodge and canoe rentals. A picnic would be great. Not to be missed.

No matter how long it takes you to get there, it's worth every minute. We were blessed to have a clear blue day and it didn't disappoint. There are hiking trails to get an even more spectacular view and everything is signposted really well. Best time is to go in the morning as to beat the mile long car park... More

Beautiful view and crystal clear water. As beautiful as Lake Louise amd more secluded. Hiking in the area limited due to Grizzely Bears. 4 people in a hiking group minimum or a possible $5000 fine. (if a bear doesnt eat you first!)

During the summer months it is crucial to get to Moraine Lake as early as possible. The scenery is stunning.

We made this side trip in order to hike the Larch Valley. It was a rainy day, but the scenery was stunning and well worth the effort. The beginning of the trail is a little bit of a slog, but the upper reaches of the trail to the lake at the bottom of the ascent to Sentinel Pass was really... More

We were amazed at the beauty of the place. It is breathtaking. The colour of the water is so beautiful. We were told by locals that Lake Moraine is even more beautiful than Lake Louise which is hard to beat but is true. For the more adventurous, there are hiking trails there that require hikers to be in groups of... More

What an incredible place, with a shade of blue in the water that is unforgettable. We loved the short hike that goes half way around the lake. Gorgeous!
