Close to Jasper, these lakes are easily accessible after breakfast, lunch or dinner (or eat out at Pyramid Lake Resort). The drive from town almost always offered wildlife viewing--elk, loons, bufflehead ducks.

We decided to go for a drive while in Jasper and found Pyramid lake Resort. It was such a nice surprise. I expect it would be amazing in the summer and there was skating rinks and a form of curling/bocce on the lake as well. We look forward to coming back and booking accommodation here in the near future!

Lots of hiking trails in summer and skating on frozen lake in winter. Cold to swim in but possible. Mountain views

Driving on the Pyramid Road to get to the lakes, we always spotted wildlife. The lakes are great to visit unless a tour bus is there then it gets crowded at Pryamid Island. You can read about my trip and wildlife spotting at winenchocolate dot com.

Easy and fun hike in the snow to the outcrop into the frozen lake, and then to walk on the lake itself. Blue skies and sparkly snow, brilliant to see the lake expanse with the mountain backdrop.

We rented a paddleboat and had a lovely afternoon on the lake. It was gorgeous out there. Lovely walk on the island too.

This is a classic for the photography tourist. Instagram is plastered with pictures of these two lakes. Go early or late for sun rise and sun sets Also it's best to get there before the crowds Also if the northern lights are out then it's the best place in the park to see them Enjoy

It was a beautiful sunny day in January when I visited Pyramid Lake. Only a short drive from the Jasper townsite, Pyramid Lake is a gorgeous setting for skating, x country skiing, curling, dog sled rides and more! During summer months this is a favourite site for weddings because of the great setting in the mountains.
