“MORAINE LAKE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. We came upon this lake by accident on our way up to Lake Louse not knowing what would be down this narrow road. to the left before getting up to Lake Louise. Do not miss this place. We were there about ten years ago.

“My favorite place on the planet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

There are some place you visit that just envoke awe. This is one of them. Actaully the best of the ones I have found so far in my lifetime. Absoloutely stunning. Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks doesn't take a backseat to it's neighbor in the Canadien Rockies, Lake Louise.

“Breath-taking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is the most beautiful lake i've seen. Go there in the morning so you could see the reflection of peaks on the turquoise water. It's hard to leave.

“Way better than Lake Louise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

A slightly longer drive but so worth it. It was just beautiful. I would also suggest going to Lake Minnewonka - even larger and just a beautiful drive. We went back again in the same week so we could see more wildlife.

“Beautiful Lake with Great Trails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I have been here many time both summer and winter with my primary purpose to climb in the Valley of 10 peaks behind it. When I married my wife 30 years ago it was a part of our honeymoon trip. If your visit is in winter it is a 14k ski to visit it and well worth it.
