  • On one of the world's most beautiful highways, the Icefields Parkway, you can't miss Herbert Lake. Another one of the beautiful lakes in this area.

  • A wonderful, small and less crowded lake along the Icefields Parkway. Good place to take a short walk around the lake and for a picnic lunch.

  • Detour to here when Lake Louise is way too busy in the summer time. The view here is breathtaking and the water has dreamy colors. The water was cold despite the 30-degree weather and had many bugs by the shore. However, the trail around the lake was super fun and kid-friendly. It’s berry season so we saw a black bear on the trail but it just wandered away when it saw us.
  • If you're getting an early start on the Icefield Parkway, make sure to include a stop here. In the morning on a clear day without wind, this lake offers an amazing view with a glassy reflection. There's a very small shoulder in front of the lake where you can stop and take a quick picture. If going later in the day, this lake appears to be super popular for kayaking and paddle boarding.
