We visited Maligne lake as part of a day tour which included Maligne Canyon. The striking blue colour of the lake enclosed by mountains and pine trees stays long in the memory. We disembarked for 20 minutes at Spirit Island which is a highly picturesque part of the lake and provided some great photo opportunities.
If you are looking for a relaxing day out in a fabulous romantic setting then this trip is for you.

This a lovely spot and well worth the drive from Jasper. We didn't do the lake cruise but there are many hiking trails. We did the Mary Schaeffer Loop and it was a nice hike and not too hard.

One of the prettiest spots in the Jasper area. It is a bit of a drive to get there but there is plenty to see on the way. The road there is one of the best chances to spot wildlife in the area including bears.

A must see in the Canadian Rockies. My husband and grandson rented a canoe and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, while I sat on a bench in the sunshine, taking in the beauty of this tranquil lake. What I love about Maligne Lake is, that it is not overrun with tourists like Lake Louise, but is just as beautiful.

One should really do some extensive hiking to enjoy this area. We only spent one day here, but it would be a great place to camp and explore. There are plenty of bears so bring your spray and bells. The boat trip to Spirit Island would probably be advisable as well. There are plenty of accomodations in Jasper if you are not campers. This place should be on everyone's bucket list.
