Moraine Lake Canada

Iconic image from Banff National Park, probably one of the most photographed lakes in Canada. Lake gets its blue colour from the glacial melt.
This location gets very busy with tourists. There is a parking lot at the lake however during the summer it fills up very fast. My advice is get there early for the sunrise or later in the day/evening once the crowds thin out. I arrived at this location about an hour before sunrise and there were already a couple hundred people here. Visited in early August.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

There is a parking lot at the lake however this fills up rather quickly (by 7-8 am). Once the lot is full you can only access Moraine Lake by shuttle bus from the parking lot beside Chateau Fairmont Lake Louise. Road is closed for winter from Oct-May.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.
