Once you've finished visiting beautiful Lake Louise you want to follow the signs up to Moraine Lake and i promise you that you won't be disappointed whatsoever!

It is nature at her finest but please don't take my word for it and go see it for yourselves and indulge all your senses in a feast of pure delight.

Goodness, this place is stunning. The crystal clear water, beautiful mountains, and serene environment make it a must-see in the Canadian Rockies! Those who are fans of scenery will find it easy to pass time just admiring the unbelievably beautiful views of the lake and surrounding area.

It's also less touristy than Lake Louise, so it beats it for those who prefer less mainstream spots. (Not downgrading Lake Louise, though - it's still a gorgeous sight.)

There are some trails you can take while at Moraine Lake. Didn't get to check them out as I was pressed for time, but they definitely provide options for activities while in the area.

Saw some kayaks as well, but it was pretty chilly when I visited and nobody else was out on the lake.

Highly recommended! You won't regret spending time here!!!

This is the picture postcard lake of all lakes in this region of extraordinary beauty. It's so beautiful that the Canadians put it on one of their monetary bills.
