Welcome to Maligne Lake

Tourists have been exploring and marvelling at Maligne Lake for quite a while now... 

The Stoney Indians of the Kooteney Plains in the Saskatchewan River Valley knew of the legendary lake that was to be known as Maligne Lake for hundreds of years. The next known person to see it was Henry Macleod in 1875.

It would not be visited again until the summer of 1908 when a remarkable woman, Mary Schaffer, visited, explored and, in 1911, wrote about the lake and the public learned of this unique piece of Canada.

Today Maligne Lake Tours gives you comfortable, safe and spectacular access to the lake's most famous treat, Spirit Island, all summer long.
