Best Time To VisitThe line can get long on weekends, but most weekdays the crowds are lighter.
- Stand in Awe of Moraine Lake and Lake Louise
Located in Banff National Park, these glacier-fed lakes have a distinctive turquoise blue shade. The color is due to the refraction of light off of the rocks. Moraine Lake is only half the size of the nearby Lake Louise. There are hiking trails and lots of scenic overlooks to take in the beauty. The Fairmont Chateau by Lake Louise is the best hotel to stay at when visiting this area.
Best Time To VisitThe lake reaches its crest in mid to late June, and when it's full, the colors are the most prominent. For the best colors, come in July and August. There is a canoe doc in the summer and a skating rink on the frozen lake in the winter.
