We only saw a small bit of this park, but we would love to come back and do the hike-in camping. Really gorgeous and rare beauty, high in the cool mountains. Good hiking shoes and all-weather clothing recommended if you are going any father than the 1st lake!

We were only in Whistler for a short time, so really wanted to find the best hike we could. We therefore asked a variety of people and everyone came back with advice to head to Joffre Lakes. It was a bit of drive from our Whistler base, but inevitably the drive itself was pretty stunning in itself. And it was... More

If you're planning on hiking while staying in Whistler then don't miss this hike. It's rated nmoderate and definitely is all that after the first couple of kilometers. The middle and upper lakes are a beautiful turquoise color and the glacier at the top is worth seeing. The trail is undergoing some repair so be prepared to go through a... More

We went in the dead of winter and the views were still breathtaking. I would recommend for anyone looking for great photo ops or just into scenic views.

Love this place. I have gone several times now and always looking forward to going again. The Glacier fed lakes are astonishing!! You can also camp at the last lake in at the top (third) and there is an outhouse. In case of emergencies there is also a helicopter landing pad. It was very quiet the day we went. With... More

A very very special place. I have never felt literally blown away by a view and a setting in all my life. Eternally special Beau. The lower lake is ethereal. Stop here as long as you possibly can! You will see why!!

A few different lakes close and far stunning view and well with the stop. Would recommend stretching your legs here as you walk down the path. Which is full of great air quality, mushrooms and trees

Beautiful lakes and scenery. The hike up to the middle lake is tough, due to slope and roots of trees. The hike thereafter is easier due to the new trail. Plan a day doing this climb and camp overnight if you can. The views are worth it.

spent a day of hiking with our 4 girls, youngest is 7 year old. They loved it. Trail is well kept, gorgeous views all the way up and down. Awesome place to explain glaciers to your kid without traveling far away. Pack a real piknik because you really want to stay a long time at the top near the amazing... More

Did a day hike to the Upper Joffre Lake via the Middle and Lower on a beautiful sunny day. Outstanding beauty and well worth the effort. Track is being upgraded at the moment so a bit muddy and slippery in parts
