Excellent approach, much quieter and more peaceful than other hugely popular locations. Well worth the journey to see, walk around this almost idyllic lake.

The lake about an hour's drive from Jasper, but well worth the effort. The drive there is beautiful with a good opportunity to see wildlife. At the lake, we rented a canoe and had a wonderful experience padding along the lake with the beauty of the surrounding mountains. There are boated trips down the lake which we heard were also...

Like - stunning scenery, wildlife on the drive from Jasper, tons of parking, lakeside restaurant serving good, wholesome food at a very reasonable price (excellent beef stew, bowl of chilli, rolls and coffee for less than C$20), easy, well marked trails to walk. Dislikes - the lake cruise was overpriced.

Interesting and beautiful lake, nice trails to follow, long or short around edge, plenty of carparking although can end up in different carpark to the one you started in after the walk! Not much wildlife but maybe on account of lots of people. Boat trips available but we didn't go as no time, restaurant and rest room facilities good.

Paths around it a bit slippery and in need of clearing as tree branches to trip on. Water a nice blue colour with mountains as a back drop

The light dusting of snow everywhere added to the magic of the place. The boat trip itself is nothing special but the lake is set in wonderful scenery. The tour from Jasper was excellent and the local guide helped us to see Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Black Bear and Cubs. Such a fantastic experience, hope to return one day.

We took a tour from Jasper that took us to Maligne Lake. We learned about the history of the area and saw beautiful scenery and wildlife. There is a boat tour available on the lake.

A nice lake. However being from Vancouver Island it wasn't too far off from what we see at home. It didn't have the blue glacier water of some other lakes. However very nice. Worthwhile if you don't live near scenery like this. There was a restaurant and a gift shop there.

We took the boat ride to Spirit Island. It was worth every penny spent! I particularly liked how the young man who was our guide interacted with the people on the boat. He was very knowledgable and answered all questions.
