Trip Planner: Canada / Alberta / Canadian Rockies / Banff National Park / Lake Louise / Moraine Lake
Part of a critical habitat for Canada's grizzlies, Moraine Lake offers several hiking trails with inspiring views of the snow-capped Valley of the Ten Peaks. If the area around the glacier-fed lake looks familiar, that's probably because you've seen it on the back of the country's 20 dollar bill. In June the lake reaches its highest level and reflects a distinct blue shade, caused by deposits of fine-grained rock particles. To stay safe in this "bear country," hike in a group and carry plenty of bear spray. Take the guesswork out of planning a Banff National Park vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Moraine Lake Reviews
We took the cruise and really enjoyed going to the island. Take some time to walk and meditate. We even watched a grizzly feeding on buffalo berries! more »
Mooiste meer van Alberta. Mooie korte wandelingen te doen en majestueus uitzicht op het prachtige meer. Zekere 's ochtends vroeg een aanrader, zeker als het gesneeuwd heeft. more »Most beautiful lake of Alberta. Nice short walks to do and majestic views of the beautiful lake. A very good morning, especially when it was snowed.
Possibly the most beautiful place in the world but it gets crazy busy so it's hard to get in. Going for a canoe ride here is with the $100 CAD price because there is nothing else quite like it. There are also many great hikes that begin here. It's the kind of place that is hard to believe is even real.
This is just an amazing place to visit. There's quite a few places to see in the Rockies, but this place is absolutely beautiful. If you're just passing through, it's worth to take a stop in. And if you're trying to decide on a road trip there, I absolutely recommend this place. 5 stars isn't even close to enough. You'll vjusy have to see this place with your own eyes. 👍
