Moraine Lake, Alberta

Banff Canada

Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park. It is surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and rock piles, creating a scene so stunning it almost seems unreal. That view of the mountains behind the lake in Valley of the Ten Peaks is known as the “Twenty Dollar View”, as Moraine Lake was featured on the reverse side of the 1969 and 1979 issues of the Canadian twenty dollar bill.

Sit lakeside and absorb the sights and pure mountain air, or explore further by canoeing and hiking.
