Even on a overcast day in January the trip up the road past Maligne Canyon to the end of the road at Maligne Lake is worth it. The road has spectacular views the whole way with many spots to hop out and take some wintery photos. We didn't come prepared for winter hiking but we saw some fresh snowshoe tracks... More

At the end of the road is Maligne Lake. A boat ride to Spirit Island is very recommended. The cruise is very informative isolating some of the points of interest along the trip. Restaurant and souvenir shops at the lake. Best to pre-book the boat ride in the peak season.

A must see while in the Jasper area. The ride up on the motorcycle and the views at the lake were amazing. There was wildlife, rapids, beautiful lakes along the way. Maligne Lake and area was an amazing sight. Plenty to look at and do. Nice restaurant and souvenir shop as well..

We had read about Maligne Lake while researching for our trip. It was a rewarding stop while making our was through jasper to banff. The scenery was beautiful, and the hike was relaxing. I suggest bringing some snacks, hang out and enjoy the view!

The drive up is a bit long, but beautiful, and once you get there there are a lot of activities (paid and free) you can do. You can go hiking, have a picnic, take the boat to Spirit Island, rent a canoe etc.
