The walk around the lake wasnt to long nor to short. It had an amazing view . The hike/walk itself was casual nothing to challenging. You cant beat the views on a beautiful day!

Crystal blue waters are there for all to see. To get away from the crowds, just take a hike around the lake.

Our guide using his previous experience altered our itinerary to get to Lake Moraine before the roads and paths were jammed by other tourist groups. Misty rain and low clouds covering the tops of the mountains as we hopped off the bus made it look like a classic oriental painting. A very beautiful lake also very blue. A lot of climbing to get to the view point with no hand rails.

Moraine Lake is worth visiting once. If you compare it to Lake Louise....well there really is no comparison at all. Lake Louise takes it hands down.

After travelling to over 75 countries, I didn't think I'd find anywhere that could top Yosemite Valley but Moraine Lake did just that. The exorbitant canoe rental was absolutely worth it-- don't even hesitate. If the weather is bad, try to come back. Lake Louise gets more publicity and is a picture postcard but Moraine Lake is a place you can lose yourself in.
