The place was really calming and spectacular! I had the lake scene feels from Howl's Moving Castle just from being there. I even wished I can have the place as my backyard. I heard that the place looks enchanting during winter and I'll give a...More

My wife and I were here last month, in October when it was snowing. We had winter clothing, so we were okay with the weather. The scenery here is very nice. See attached photos.

Bought the boat ticket to this island on Maligne Lake, it’s so beautiful and tranquil. Just one draw back that the time limited to 15 minutes, so we didn’t have enough time to soak up the beauty, but still it’s worth it

We visited Maligne Lack on a cloudy, cold day with impending storms... so didn't have the best views, but I would imagine it is absolutely stunning when you can see all the mountains surrounding the lake.
