Moraine Lake Canoe

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 18 October 2019 in Sport & Recreation.

A couple of people head out in a canoe. Moraine Lake is glacially fed, which means, yes, the water is very cold! Situated just under nine miles from the Village of Lake Louise (and another awesome lake!), Moraine Lake sits at 6,183 ft. in what is known as the Valley of Ten Peaks. 

We checked on rental rates, but decided we would hike since it was misting a little and it looked like it could rain. Rates were starting from $120.00 CAD plus tax per canoe for a one hour rental. Paddle, life jackets and basic instruction are provided.

Water temperature seldom rises above 10° C (50° F). A capsize in these chilly waters can result in hypothermia.

It is impressive to see this steep wall go down to the edge of the lake. And what beautiful blue water!

The scenery is just breathtaking. The people in the canoe offer excellent perspective as to how large these mountains are. Gorgeous image.
