It may be smaller and less visited than Lake Louise but Moraine Lake is no less impressive and occupies a splendid location at the foot of the Valley of Ten Peaks.
There are numerous walking trails to the end of the lake and to other nearby lakes and valleys, as well as canoeing on the lake itself.
Lake Louise Gondola
In summer and winter a ride on Lake Louise Gondola provides a panoramic view of the Bow Valley and Lake Louise itself nestled below the Victoria Glacier.
A 4km hike to Lake Agnes is rewarded with views of the pretty mountain lake encircled by peaks and the Big Beehive rock formation.
The famous Tea House is a popular spot for refreshments, all of which are prepared on the premises.
Bow Lake & Peyto Lake
Picturesque Bow Lake lies alongside the Icefields Parkway to the north of Lake Louise and the Bow Glacier, which hangs above the lake, is best viewed from the Num-ti-Jah Lodge on its north shore. After crossing over Bow Summit, the highest pass on the Parkway, a short trail leads to a viewpoint overlooking the stunning turquoise waters of Peyto Lake.
