But don't be fooled by the colour, it is glacial and therefore freezing! Absolutely loved this hike and it is perfect for all hiking experience. The first lake is right off the parking lot so if you want to take it easy and relax by the beautiful waters you can. The middle lake is a bit of a hike up,... More

Hiked this trail with friends who showed me the new paths that have been put in place to make this a more enjoyable and accessible climb to see all 3 of the lakes. Well worth the hike to see the 3rd lake and the glacier. Stunning views :)

Joffre Lakes is without question one of the most beautiful, accessible hikes in British Columbia. The three pristine, glacier-fed. alpine lakes provide one stunning vista after another. Located on The Duffy Lake Road (north of Pemberton) in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, it’s a one-hour scenic drive north of Whistler Village. Not near Squamish as listed. The trail is a manageable...

This hike has recently been improved. They have put in a dirt path through the boulder field and they are also doing further improvements further up the trail. This is by far the best bang for your buck hike. Moderate effort, huge reward. We camped one night... got there Friday, left Saturday. It was getting really busy on Saturday so... More

Beautiful. The hike was absolutely sublime. There are 3 lakes in total. From what I've heard the grounds are muddy most of the year, so expect it to be moist. To be comfortable after the hike, bring some sandals, other pair of shoes, or a towel to wipe off the mud from your hike. First Lake is literally a 5... More

There are three lakes in total: Lower, Middle and Upper. The Lower is steps away (500 meters) from the parking lot, the Middle one is 3.5 km away, and the Upper is another 1.5 from the middle, 5.5 km hike in total. We have made our way to all three. With the occasional stops at each lake and in between... More

Really wanted to see a turquoise lake while visiting Whistler...instead we got 3! If you are anywhere near Pemberton or Whistler this is a MUST do. It is spectacular! I researched many hikes to do before we got to whistler and this one said it was intermediate 4-5 hours. The trail was under construction and the detour was quite strenuous.... More

We left early from Vancouver and got to Joffre Lakes Provincial Park by 10am. The hike to the first lake is only a few minutes. To the second and third lake took us about 2.5 to 3 hours. The trail is being rerouted and improved so soon it should take even less time. We met people from all over the... More

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!
