I went during the winter. The view was not that good since I went during a blizzard. But while you walk, you can choose from different routes going all around the lake! Very good place to enjoy the day or maybe half a day of exercise.

The drive from Jasper was a bit long, but this was another beautiful spot in Canada. The lake itself is gorgeous, and there is some wildlife like geese, ducks, chipmunks, and certain birds that makes it even more interesting. I recommend taking the short hike off of this lake to the Moose Lake (I think that's the name). Totally different... More

Maligne Lake is accessed by a relatively scenic road but it is an "in and out" drive. It is worth it. Allow time to walk along the shore.

Don't miss a visit to the Maligne Lake. The drive is worth every second. You are going to stop a few times on your way to the lake to take some photos. When you arrive, you will not believe your eyes, so beautiful mountains and forest surround the lake. The water is cold, but my 20 something son and son-in-law... More

We drove to this place by ourselves, ride the boat to spirit island. Very beautiful lake. Nice restaurant, a lot of choices for the food, but a bit pricy. Easy access for all ages. A must stop in Jasper National Park. I used 12 mm lens for most my photos.

Great place to go with family or friends. You can have a picnic on the lake - there is an area with picnic tables. Great view of the lake and the mountains. There is shop, place to eat and attractions in the area. You can spend a day having fun.

It is an hour’s drive and about 30 miles from Jasper to the lodge, restaurant (great coffee!), gift shop and boat docks at Maligne Lake (pronounced Maleen). The deep blue, 14 mile long lake surrounded by picturesque snow capped mountains is the largest in Jasper National Park. Canoe rentals and a 90 minute boat cruise to famous Spirit Island (recommended,... More

The view of the lake itself from the shore is beautiful, but if this is all that you see of the lake, then it's probably worth 3.5 stars in comparison with other beautiful lakes in the Rockies. You get a more candid view of the lake and its surrounding glaciers by taking a boat cruise to see the spiritual island.... More

Maligne lake was one of my favourite places I visited on my trip. We were lucky we had such a beautiful day to enjoy the incredible scenery. We were not going to take the boat trip but decided last minute we would. My boyfriend and I don't really like going on tourist trips although this boat trip was pretty good.... More
