Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, Pemberton

(280+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, with its ice fields and rushing streams, offers an adventure all year long. In summer, the sunlight reflects against the "rockflour" glacial silt of the three lakes, creating wonderful colors. When the lakes freeze during winter, you'll find yourself in the middle of an icy wonderland. Take a hike around the lower, middle, and upper lakes all along the trail, each one more impressive than the last, with the highest one positioned just beneath the glacier. Try mountaineering, but only if have previous experience; otherwise, go fishing or camping. Feel free to bring your pets along, but only on a leash.
