Joffre Lakes offer 3 spectacular glacier lakes, along with some beautiful forest views and waterfalls along the way. The first lake is minutes from the parking area and is easy to access for all ages. The second and third lakes require a bit of a hike. Trails have been redone in the last few years to make it more accessible.... More

We were staying at Lillooet Lake and drove up to Joffre Lakes to hike to the top lake. 1st time on showshoes and the track was iced up in some places which made it hard work but the reward was worth it. The falls were amazing and the view at the top lake was fantastic!!

trail is hard packed and very icy, dangerously so. Need to have some type of traction aide for your boots.

Hands down one of the best hikes in the corridor. A must do but wear the right shoes for hiking. The upper lake is amazing and the new waterfall is unreal.

We love to hike here - this time it was snowy and we couldn't do the full loop but it's just divinely beautiful. If heaven exists it looks like this.

The most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life, but come to prepare for a long and hard hiking.However, the view and the place lacks any effort, just three amazing turquoise lakes. I felt like I was in paradise.

We hiked to the Upper Lake and it took us about 1 hour to get there and about 50 minutes to get back. We didn't get to campground but made it to the rocky area before the campground and were able to view the lake from there. The lakes are a beautiful turquoise colour and it was an amazing hike....

One of the most beautiful places on earth. Go all the way to the top-absolutely awesome. I still cannot believe how gorgeous it was. It's very steep in a couple areas if going to the top. Worth every bit of the effort. Gorgeous.

These lakes are amazing and I am at loss of words to decribe its beauty. The hike is worth the effort. We were a group of friends that hiked tothe first lake and left due to time constraint. Those who did the second and the third lake were at awe. May be next time. Take your cameras, those will be... More
