Spirit Island Cruise on Jasper's Maligne Lake

Maligne Lake

Take a relaxed 1.5-hour cruise on the placid waters of gorgeous Maligne Lake, one of the true gems of Jasper National Park, and stopping for a short hike on the lake’s Spirit Island. This beautiful yet surprisingly accessible natural wonder is the perfect spot to get a taste for the beautiful scenery of Alberta and the Canadian Rockies.

Make your way to the boat’s departure point at the southern edge of Maligne Lake, picking a morning or afternoon departure time that fits your schedule. Then set sail as you ply the greenish-blue waters of this majestic body of water, breathing in the fresh mountain air and enjoying the incredible mountain scenery visible in the background. As you cruise listen to your guide as they explain the geology, history, glaciology and wildlife of the Canadian Rockies region, adding further context to your trip.

Then arrive at Maligne Lake’s postcard-worthy Spirit Island, stepping off for a short walk around its shores set amidst the incredible scenery of the lake. You’ll return to the boat’s original departure point at the end of your ride.

Stunning, stunning and stunning! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic crew. Sam and Mo did a sterling job of describing what we were seeing. The scenery is wonderful the opportunity to get off the boat and walk around the area of Spirit Island was very special. It was topped with a sighting of a bear on the shore line, which made the trip absolutely magical. 10 out of 10 and will do this again when we're back in the Rockies.
