Moraine Lake
Nestled at the base of the Valley of the Ten Peaks, Moraine Lake’s turquoise waters change color throughout the day as different amounts of light refract of the miniscule particles of glacier-ground rock that remain suspended in its waters. Though it has a B-List rating compared to Lake Louise’s A-List status, this spot is arguably the more spectacular of the two. Located just 14km from the hamlet of Lake Louise, the drive takes about an hour. Once at the lake, you can hike up to Rock Pile, clearly visible at the front of the lake, for the best viewpoint or explore neighboring valleys with multiple full day options available. Be forewarned, there are more visitors then parking spots. The lot often fills up by 10:00am so go early or after 4pm when day hikers have already left for the day.
