“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

This lake is a different colour each time you drive by. Even though I live here and go by it a number of times each year, I can't help stopping to take a picture almost every time I go by in the summer.

“Worth the trip to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We rented a van in Skagway and drove up the highway, ending at Emerald Lake. What a beautiful lake. Being from West Texas where all of our lakes (if any have water) are brown....it was an incredible sight.

I see Emerald Lake almost everyday and it looks different each time... beautiful each time, with the greens of all shades.

“Worth a look- amazing color”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stopped here briefly on a bus tour to take photos- the color of the lake was amazing and as it was a clear day, the photos clearly show the emerald shading. a lovely stop on the way to or from Whitehorse.

“surreal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

My pictures from Emerald lake are probably the best of all my shots - we rented a motorcycle for the day and the weather was unbelievable. This lake is without a doubt - the most spectacular lake I have ever seen.
