This lake took my breath away. You need to see it at different times of the day and from as many views as you can. Just stunning!! A MUST see if you are in Canada.

One of the nicest lakes you will ever see. Relatively easy walk/hike for all to get to the lookouts if in reasonable shape. This lake is truly beautiful

It’s a steep hike from the car park to the lake but well worth it as the colour of the water is an amazing turquoise blue. Again, we found ourselves amongst another bunch of selfie takers insisting they get as close as they can to pose in front of the lake outside of the viewing area ruining other people’s photographs. We were lucky to see Peyto as I understand it closed shortly after we were there for improvements.

In my opinion the most beautiful viewpoint in Banff np. From the parking lot you take a little walk for like 10min to Bow summit where the viewpoint is located. (see my panorama pic) When I was there I had to fight through a crowd of tourists to get a view. So if you see pic of calm romantic nature on instagram expect it to be more "awake". Perhaps it just depends on the date and time you're there. But check the weather and only visit when its clear to see this scenic landscape.

Yes, the water does indeed look like that, thanks to the mineral run off from the mountains. Truly an amazing spot.
