This very popular 11 km round trip hike/walk winds through charming open forest and for the views, rivals Lake Louise without the crowds, plus it is reachable from Vancouver in a day trip. The trail is extremely well built and maintained, almost an autobahn as trails go, continually steep up to the second lake of three, each lake a gem... More

The beauty of it is unimaginable, the hike is 5kms to the 3rd lake and quite a hike for me as it was my first one ever, but doable. The drive there from Whistler so pretty and would highly recommend this hike.

Large Car park is just off highway 99. The lake comes into view after a short downhill walk and it is a wow! So scenic with snow capped mountains. A camera is a must! We only stopped at first lake but further walks upward led to other lakes.

While planning for my trip to Vancouver and vicinity, I was looking for some hike recommendations. That is how I stumbled upon the Joffre lakes. And I am so glad that we decided to drive up an extra hour from Whistler to see this place. It’s an easy drive on BC 99. We stopped at Green Lake on the way... More

Joffre Lakes Glacier is a stunning sight, but we couldn't believe how much it has melted! The parking lot is a perfect place to shoot an image of the glacier, but we were wishing we had the time to actually take a hike to the lakes.

OK, I haven't been EVERYWHERE, but I've been to a lot of places, both locally and internationally, and I have never seen anything as stunning as Joffre Lakes and the Matier Glacier. Nothing. The good news is that for very little effort, there is a major payoff. I'm not in the greatest shape and made it up in 2 hours.... More

Ok, I admit I could be in a better shape and my legs painfully reminded me at the end of the day... But it was absolutely worth it! The decor is absolutely gorgeous and varies greatly as you make the climb - an experience we will cherish for a long time.

To preface the review I will attempt to summarize the hike in three parts as well as discussion of conditions for camping. Note this review is based on a trip June 11th-12th 2015. First Portion of Hike: Parking lot to first lake. Here is where you will encounter the most bugs (mainly mosquitos) on the entire hike. The parking lot... More

Fantastic views of turquoise waters and white blue glaciers. Nice walking trails to access them too. Steep in places but still will surfaced.

Short easy stroll from car park. There was still snow along the path and around the lake. Very pretty and worth the drive.
