4.8/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web
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. Put Moraine Lake at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lake Louise vacation trip planner.
