Maligne Lake, location of the Rocky Mountains most famous photograph
No landmark so perfectly epitomizes the Canada Rockies like world-famous Spirit Island on Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park . The 90 minute scenic cruise to this diminutive jewel has been crowned as the "BEST BOAT TOUR IN CANADA" by 8 million Reader's Digest subscribers.
Located at the south end of the Maligne Lake Road, a gorgeous, wildlife-filled, 48 km drive from the town site of Jasper, Maligne Lake offers a myriad of activities to visitors. In addition to the Spirit Island scenic cruise, visitors may rent canoes and kayaks, fish for trout and hike. All adventures begin at the Maligne Lake Day Lodge where the full length windows capture the glacier clad mountains encircling the lake.
