So the lake was fun and the views were nice. It was cloud we we went, so the views weren't the best. But the real reason for the low rating is the way Brewster does reservations. We bought the $150 combo pass. Since we started in Banff, we bought it there. We were able to book the Maligne Lake cruise... More

It is a beautiful drive from Jasper to Maligne Lake. One can see the mountains, forests, some animals, charred trees from the fire of last summer, Medicine Lake, and beautiful scenery. It is a very relaxing area to visit. One can rent boats to explore the lake as well as a boat cruise to Spirit Island and back.

Managed to get tickets last minute and so did the cruise. Staff great and informative but I think once you haVe seen some of the other sights along the Rockies is is not as stunning, but we did it and ticked the box. The best part of the trip was seeing a black bear on route and it walked in... More

After hiking the easy Moose Lake trail, we put our inflatable kayak into the water and spent a most enjoyable four hours kayaking around the lake. Boat rentals are available near the main lodge. The only downside to this lake are the noisy tour boats that speed along the lake creating large wakes and making it difficult for canoeists and... More

I visited here for the day. We had a picnic breakfast overlooking the lake and then went on a 3km walk around some of the lake as well as seeing the amazing vegetation. Amazing views. Cruises are available as well as hiring canoes.

This lake was the last lake during our week long trip. We prefer Moraine Lake and Bow lake. Maligne Lake is about 1 hour drive from Jasper. It was a little bit disappointing as there were lots of sight seeing boats on the lake, which affected the natural beauty.

The road from Maligne Canyon to Maligne Lake (pronounced Muh-leen) is jaw-dropping! Worth every single solitary minute. We couldn't help but stop at so many spots and saw a black bear too! Once you get to the lake, it's just lovely. We didn't go to Spirit Island, but we hiked the Moose Lake Loop. Unfortunately, my elusive moose stayed hidden.... More

The lake is glacier fed and a beautiful turquoise. Great hiking in the area and canoe rentals available. A beautiful location and a great place to spend a nice day hiking and enjoying nature. Wear good shoes and bring water. There is a nice cafeteria at the lake

My husband and I recently enjoyed a one-hour hike along Maligne Lake. It was an easy walk and extremely scenic!
