Joffre Lakes Provincial Park is about 180 km from Vancouver and 60 km from Whistler. The parking is free. The park consists of a trail that leads to 3 glacial lakes with mesmerizing blue and turquoise water. The first lake, Lower Joffre Lake, is located just steps from the parking lot. It takes a couple of minutes to reach it.... More

I've hiked a lot of trails and this is by far the most beautiful hike I've ever been on. A few details that may help: Length of hike - We did the whole hike, there and back in under 3 hours and that's with a baby. We took our 4 month old daughter on this hike. Stopped a lot to... More

Me and my family have visited Joffre lakes today. First lake is a small walk from the car park and looks fantastic. So we started our hike to the middle pool, And what a hike it was, the time stated as 2.5 hours is wrong as it took us maybe 1 hour 20 minutes and that was with visiting the... More

This is a hike that with views that will be forever burned into my brain. We hiked to the Upper Lake (third lake) and the scenery was absolutely stunning. However, it was not without its challenges: the biting flies were a little insane, so bring bug repellant and physically, it is definitely a difficult hike. The trail becomes very steep... More

Spent a great day up there, glacier lakes are very beautiful. The only disadvantage are crowds - it's better to come sooner especially during sunny weekends because parking is full later

The Joffre lakes Park has a wonderful hike from he 1st lake past the second up to the third. The first part of the trail is a pretty steep climb, not technical just a solid workout. The three lakes are all a different colour. At the second you get closer to the glacier and then the third you are at... More

It's a fairly vertical hike with no switchbacks - just straight up. There are three places to stop along the way - lower, middle, and upper lakes, all green from the mica concentrations from the glacial melt. By the time you get to the middle lake, you can see the beautiful glaciers that feed the lakes and the dramatically rushing... More

Amazing scenery. Lower Joffre Lake is nice. If you can hike a steep hill, go all the way to Upper Joffre Lake. You will see a huge water fall and then the view of the Lake with glacier as background.

We loved the scenery and the views. We hated the mosquitoes, but in the end it was all worth it. Make sure to cover yourself up as much as possible and bring lots anti-mosquito-spray. If you are in the area and have about 5h to spare, go see all three Joffre Lakes!
