Our group of 5 did this hike on a sunny Friday, August 21st. It took us about 50 minutes to drive the 63 kilometres (39 miles) from the Hilton Hotel in the Whistler Village to the provincial park site. We arrived around 10:45 and were able to park in the lower parking lot close to the trailhead. As indicated in... More

Joffre Lakes was an excellent and beautiful hike. It was a sunny warm days and the colors of the lake and glaciers were outstanding. Well worth the drive from Whistler to go and see. The hike itself was fun as well. The trail to the first and second lake was in great shape while the trail to the third lake... More

This is a challenging hike that starts with a nice gradual climb on a wide trail but soon changes to some steep sections with lots of boulders to maneuver. Upon reaching the last lake you will be greeted with a magnificent view of azure blue water with a stunning glacier backdrop. This is a good place to sit for awhile... More

This is a challenging and invigorating hike that is well worth the effort. You hike to the breath taking views of lakes with glaciers and mountain backdrops and pass one waterfall. So worth wait tk the ladt lake to have a nice picnic lunch before begini the downward trek back.

The only reason I didn't give this attraction a 5-star is because it was absolutely overcrowded, killing the "connecting with nature" vibe. Sites are stellar, the water is a magical blue. Warning though: this is an intermediate mountain, be prepared to have those calves and thigh muscles burn if you're a semi-fit city-dweller. To get to some of the more... More

You can't miss this hike if you don't mind a challenge. Path is well marked for amateur hikers, but it is grouse grind like until middle lake and then quite challenging to get to upper lake if you aren't used to a good workout. The scenery is breathtaking and is truly awe inspiring. We took over 200 photos because everywhere... More

The hike up to the top is well worth it, the lakes are surreal. Extremely cold!! But worth a dip :) try to leave enough time to hike around the glaciers as well!

From all our hikes in Canadian Rockies, the Joffre Lakes trail was one of the best: beautiful, gorgeous! It is really worth to go up to the third lake. It took us 2h30 to get there, and about 1h to go down. To that add 1h of picnic at the third or second lake and you're all set for a... More

There are 3 lakes. The first is a stroll in the park to reach. Glacier blue water is beautiful To reach the second lake one must climb up at a 45 degree angle for at least 90 minutes. It starts out easy and then goes straight up. The third lake is just another 15 minutes but over rocks. You need... More

The three glacial lakes along the hike are stunning! The hike itself is moderately hard. It took us a total for 4.5 hours round trip. Please check the weather - it rained for most of our trip and it made for a COLD hike. Luckily we had rain gear, hats and gloves - even though we did the hike in... More
