What You Can Expect

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.

We so enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend to anyone visiting this area of Canada. We were very pleased with the commentary on the ride out to Spirit Island, and loved the very beautiful. My husband and I are both avid photographers and so enjoyed the time we had to take pictures of this beautiful setting.
