If you are blessed (as we were) with a clear, sunny day, you will never forget this little piece of paradise. Great trails to get different angles for photos of lake reflections of mountain-top snow. Maligne Lake and Lake Louise were the photographic highpoints of our trip.

Visited in the end of April. It was so quiet and peaceful. The lake was still frozen and strong enough to stand on. The surroundings were beautiful to look at!

WOW! I am not sure what was more amazing, the water or the peaks. There are many buses that come and go so if you are traveling by car just take a bit of time and you can pretty much have the area to yourself to soak in the grandeur. I highly suggest taking a side hike nearby.We did the... More

This lake has incredible scenery! We drove past what looked like the main parking area, went across a bridge with a fantastic view, then pulled off and parked in a lot. There were washrooms but they were closed (April). We followed the path along the lake a little, then turned off onto Moose Loop. That was an incredible hike on... More

This is a good day trip from Jasper a pleasant drive up from the Jasper town site is well worth the effort with many stops to take in the views. Spirit lake is a mystery lake that can be full of water or empty, the local Indians would camp at the lake and wake the next day to a n... More

A great place to visit, peaceful and tranquil, you can soak these wonderful scenes standing on the shores, taking a kayak tour or join a boat cruise.

We drove the 40 km from the Jasper town site to get to Malign Lake. The road going in was a bit icy but all in all it was a beautiful drive. There was good parking once we arrived at the Lake. There are public bathrooms in the parking lot. Nothing was open so bring food and water if you... More

Beautifil lake. Unfortunately the weather was not at its best the day we went, but we enjoyed it all the same. The drive up is very attractive. We stopped at Medicine lake and got some superb photos. There is plenty parking at the lake, and a couple of shops and a restaurant. There are also boat trips and canoing available,... More

Maligne Lake is touristy, but it is easy to get away from the bus tours. There are hikes around the lake that are fairy quiet (some are rather rigorous) as well, you can rent boats to get away form the crowded tourist shop and viewing deck. Along the lake there are a few picnicking sites and a couple of camp... More

We first visited Maligne Lake 51 years ago on our honeymoon, and were amazed to find it exactly as remembered. The old boat house and scenic stand of trees are virually unchanged! And I am happy to report that the addition of an access road and cafeteria/store did not detract at all from the beauty and adventure of this excursion.... More
