Trip Planner: Canada / Alberta / Canadian Rockies / Banff National Park / Lake Louise / Moraine Lake
Part of a critical habitat for Canada's grizzlies, Moraine Lake offers several hiking trails with inspiring views of the snow-capped Valley of the Ten Peaks. If the area around the glacier-fed lake looks familiar, that's probably because you've seen it on the back of the country's 20 dollar bill.
