Moraine Lake in Banff National Park Alberta Canada is a jewel of a lake in the crown of the mountains. The surreal colours of the glacial fed lake are just breathtaking.

It's a little cooler at these elevations the temperature dropped from 13 down to 2 degrees in June and a little windy.

Worth the effort in good hiking shoes and rain jacket.

Breath taking and stunning views. Be sure to climb up the rock to get a bird's eye view. If you are not into climbing, there are stairs in the back. Moraine Lake is pictured on the Canadian 20 dollar bill which is not in circulation. dress warm and wear comfortable shoes. Definitely, need a great camera.

Best way to describe this place...Caribbean green water surrounded by the gorgeous Rocky Mountains! I’ve seen lots of beautiful mountain lakes but nothing with water like this. Great place to do some easy trails and take in breathtaking scenery. You won’t stop taking pictures!

I wish no one else was there! So beautiful but so so many people, and so many of them really, really rude. If you go please be nice. If you’re on a tour bus please don’t be rude - treat the natural environment as if you lived there!
