Day Trip: Paddleboarding Moraine Lake

In SUP by Kirsten AlexisLeave a Comment

I love Banff in the summertime. The sun is out and shining for long hours of the day, the trees are green, the endless trails are perfect for hiking and the glacial lakes have melted, resulting in brilliant hues of turquoise. One of the most stunning lakes, and most well-known in the region, is Moraine Lake.

Located just past Lake Louise, Moraine Lake is a vibrant turquoise, glacier-fed lake that sits in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. The road to Moraine Lake opens between the end of May and middle of June (depending on conditions) and is usually fully melted by the middle of June. It closes in October and is only available by snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.
