“The most beautiful lake in the Rockies ( don't park on the road )”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Lake Moraine is filled with tourists and quite hectic at the parking lot but its jade green colour water is very soothing and refreshing for our mind . The Gypsy Guide told me not to park at the side of the road but keep driving into the parking lot and even circle in the parking lot to wait for someone to leave is a very good advice. If you park at the side of the road , the walk can be very long but most people don't stay long . Most tourists just take a picture and leave so there is high chance of getting a spot in the parking lot which saves you a lot of time and energy.

“VISTA IS BETTER THAN LAKE LOUISE - FOR SURE!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a must stop place to go and you will not be disappointed. I talked with several people when we went to Lake Louise and we all agreed, this lake visit was unbelievable. You can walk around for a good while and the view when you get up to the little stream is worth it and it is never difficult. The best lake of 10 we visited on our Canada Rockies trip and the water was so many colors of blue, it boggles the mind. YOU MUST NOT MISS THIS!!

“One of my favourite places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is one of my favourite places in the Canadian Rockies. The scenery here is breathtaking and the walk to the far end of the lake through the woods or along the lake shore is wonderful. There are so many opportunities to take photographs that you don't know where to look first! Whilst less busy than Lake Louise the car park fills up pretty quickly so I would recommend visiting early in the day - in addition the lighting at this time of day make for perfect pictures.
There is a cafe at the Lake but prices are pretty high so I will take a picnic next time I visit.
A definite recommend - do not miss.

Just go!!! Words cannot describe the beauty of this place!!! But do yourself a favour. Go to Lake Louise first; trust me, you'll see why.
