My friends and I had Lake Moraine high on our to do list during our visit to Banff. We absolutely loved it! It's easily accessible to anyone. The mirror effect of the lake at ground level allows for some breathtaking photos. We also ran into...More
I am grateful that Canada's sunsets are literally at 10pm, so my friends and I had the time to try to catch the sunset here.
First off, I recommend to come off season! I came here late May/early June and it was PERFECT. Minimal crowds,...More
Genuinely beautiful. One of the few places i have got to and quietly under my breath said "Oh my ****ing Gosh". it is that pretty and the colour of the water is like nothing else you will have seen. Make sure to get there early,...More
In the high season, don't even bother trying to drive here. We tried several times in the morning to get into the parking lot, but it was always full. We ended up taking the bus to the lake, and enjoyed the beautiful views and the...More
I visited there during the rode trip. I stop by at the lake at 6amish.
I could see sunrise and reflection if sun light on the lake surface.
It was a fantastic scenery.
My husband and I spent 5 days at Moraine Lake in June and I must say it was one of the best trips I’d ever had. The lake is even more beautiful and breathtaking in person. I was a little doubleful that the color and...More
Once we arrived in lake Louise the weather took a turn for the worse and the cold and snow came in, although it would have been nice to see in the sun the snowy weather definately gave us a different experience of Moraine Lake ......More
This lake is one the best places to visit in Canada. It's really shocking to know that many people outside Canada don't even know such places exist ! A bit crowded, getting a pristine shot of the lake might be difficult.

Use the Parks Canada bus service as you will not find parking...it is extremely busy with people walking all over. The lake is worth seeing once but not again to avoid the crowds. In the winter the road is closed due to avalanche risk as...More

We were there in September. Our understanding is that once snow accumulation is too great they gate the road off at the spur from the Lake Louise road which would make it about 3K minimum uphill hike just to the parking lot. The lodge that is there is only Open June-October. We were under the impression road is gated after the lodge closure and not reopened until May when workers return to reopen for the summer season. If you have snowshoes you could do that hike. I don't think they stop people from hiking on closed, completely snowed over roads. I must add, when we were up there in Sept, it was snowing and beautiful!
We were there on the 17th of August and smoke was present. Did affect visibility but not too much. Hard to tell as there’s still plenty of smoke in Banff now but anything could happen. I always say - there’s only one way to... More
We were there on the 17th of August and smoke was present. Did affect visibility but not too much. Hard to tell as there’s still plenty of smoke in Banff now but anything could happen. I always say - there’s only one way to find out ;) good luck with your travels!
