Maligne Lake#1 in Best Things To Do in Jasper National Park
The second-largest glacier-fed lake in the world, Maligne Lake enchants travelers with its brilliant turquoise waters and stunning skylines. Anyone who wants to trek to Maligne Lake should take the time to visit the lake's Spirit Island as well, which is one of the most famous views of the Canadian Rockies in the world. The lake sits east of the Icefields Parkway in the southern portion of the park, and travelers can access the area with their own car, in an excursion bus or even as part of a motorcycle tour. (To book a motorcycle tour, check out the Jasper Motorcycle Tours website.) Once at the lake, visitors can take advantage of a variety of tours and excursions, or just explore the area independently.
Past visitors recommended bringing a camera to capture photos of the beautiful scenery – many note there are numerous photo opportunities. However, recent travelers also warned that both the cruise and nonmotorized watercraft rentals come at a steep price.
When the weather is warm, visitors can rent canoes, kayaks and rowboats to explore lake. Those who would prefer to sit back and relax can take a boat tour with a stop at Spirit Island. All rentals and tours are available through Maligne Lake Boat Tours, which sits on the northern tip of the lake. Cold weather doesn't hinder the area's appeal either, though visitors will certainly need to invest in a toasty outfit. Winter wildlife tours are even available during the frostier months.
