We got engaged at Peyto Lake 5 years ago and when we were planning this trip to Alberta ( we live in Ontario) we checked to make sure Peyto Lake was accessible. We read it was under construction but opening end of August. We were there end of September and greatly disappointed when we drove to Peyto and it was closed. This was to be a huge highlight of our trip and I can’t even explain how disappointed we were. Why was this closed. Stick to the schedule because people make plans and spend lots of money. Disgraceful.

One of our favorite Lakes. Worth a stop, easy to get to and you can climb up to a few viewing platforms high above the lake for a wonderful view!

Still under construction! :(

Drove by this lake and it's supposed to open this month but no date was given. We went on Aug 22nd and still closed, a gate around entrance. Some people have been jumping the fence I heard. It's been under construction for last 2 years. Upset about that as this was the top of my list and couldn't see it.

Best and most underrated lake

This lake took my breath away. You need to see it at different times of the day and from as many views as you can. Just stunning!! A MUST see if you are in Canada.

Absolutely gorgeous

One of the nicest lakes you will ever see. Relatively easy walk/hike for all to get to the lookouts if in reasonable shape. This lake is truly beautiful

Amazing

It’s a steep hike from the car park to the lake but well worth it as the colour of the water is an amazing turquoise blue. Again, we found ourselves amongst another bunch of selfie takers insisting they get as close as they can to pose in front of the lake outside of the viewing area ruining other people’s photographs. We were lucky to see Peyto as I understand it closed shortly after we were there for improvements.

This view will drop your jaw

In my opinion the most beautiful viewpoint in Banff np.
From the parking lot you take a little walk for like 10min to Bow summit where the viewpoint is located. (see my panorama pic) When I was there I had to fight through a crowd of tourists to get a view.
So if you see pic of calm romantic nature on instagram expect it to be more "awake". Perhaps it just depends on the date and time you're there.
But check the weather and only visit when its clear to see this scenic landscape.

Amazing View

Yes, the water does indeed look like that, thanks to the mineral run off from the mountains. Truly an amazing spot.

You need to see it to believe it ... I legit felt that the pictures could be photoshopped and the water might not be as blue in person ... but this was better than pictures we had a lovely time there .... .. to see pictures from our trip follow us on instagram @ bhavnaandshahaan thank you.

One of the mus-see lakes in Banff. We were lucky to be able to visit in the last week before it was closed for winter maintenance. Hiking down to the lakeside is well worth the effort.
