Mother Nature outdid herself in this breathtakingly beautiful location. Turquoise glacial lakes with reeds, trees, and snow capped mountains, plus waterfalls and rapidly moving rivers all along the trail through beautiful forest. The trail takes you to three lakes and a glacier past the third. The first lake is a short walk from parking. Reaching the second requires a long,... More

There are three parts of it: lower lake, middle and upper. The middle and upper lakes are closer together and require a fairly distant hike, while the lower lake is just around 10 minutes walk from the entrance. It was raining quite heavily when we were driving up the hill as well as when we were at the lower lake... More

Our family hiked to all three lakes (not to the campground) and thoroughly enjoyed it! Took us a total of about 3 hours and that includes stopping for lunch and lots of photos. We did this hike the day after hiking Peaks 2 and 3 of "the Chief", so legs were sore and a bit of a challenge for the... More

We hiked Joffre Lakes in mid July. We went early in the morning because it was forecasted to rain in the early afternoon. We were the only people on the trail until we reached the 2nd lake. A lot of locals enjoy this hike. On our way down, there were lots of people heading up the trail. We used hiking... More

It was a beautiful day for a hike, cloudy with partly sunny skies, and some wind. We started by eating yogurt and homemade granola, before the hike. The lower lake is a couple of minutes from the parking lot and outhouses. The hike up to the middle lake is the longest and at times strenuous and steep. Whether you take... More

My daughter, her boyfriend and I decided to drive up to Joffre Lakes during our stay in Vancouver. The drive itself was stunning with so many amazing views at almost every turn. When we got to Joffre Lakes it was a mix of cloud and sun so we were unsure how blue the lakes would be but weren't disappointed. The... More

Joffre Lakes is a trio of 3 lakes. the first can be easily accessed from the parking lot by a 10 minute easy walk. the 2nd lake is a steady uphill hike for approximately 1 hour. be prepared to stop along the way if it's been a while since you've hiked. Suggest taking a lunch and having that at the... More

A busy hike during the Canada Day weekend, a nice cardio to the second lake and then a bit more difficult terrain to the third. One of the best views on this tiny planet. Take a moment and allow yourself to feel really small.

I just did the complete hike today, that's all the way to the camp ground under the glacier and back again. From bottom to top, you do about 400 metres of vertical ascent over a 4.5 km one-way walk. Note, you can get this walk done in way less than the 3.5 hours they rate it as (each way). I... More
