Peyto Lake, Lake Louise
(4.9/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
The strikingly blue glacier-fed waters of Peyto Lake feature mesmerizing color caused by tiny particles of the rock the glacier brings forth when it "flows" in summer. From the lake, you can hike to Bow Summit--the highest point in the Canadian Rockies--and take in views from a viewing platform. If you have mobility issues, you can park closer to the viewing platform. Don't forget your camera. Put Peyto Lake into our Lake Louise vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • One of the most beautiful lakes, that I have seen. As seen from the road, where is the parking lot. Interesting colour. Apparently it is from mineral, which run down from the mountains

  • As many previous posters stated, the water is incredibly blue. It's so beautiful. Definitely worth checking out. 
  • Beautiful Lake unfrozen at December 1, 2016, easy access for some unforgettable photos, to see view!
