With over 600 freshwater lakes around the province, there are plenty to choose from for an adventure. There’s Alberta’s deepest lake, Lake Athabasca, that boasts a maximum depth of 410 feet.

And then there’s Alberta’s warmest lake for those looking for a perfect swimming spot, Lake Newell!

Whichever lake in Alberta you choose to visit, one thing’s for sure: the water won’t disappoint you. Here are 21 of our favourite lakes in Alberta worth visiting.

21 Beautiful Lakes in Alberta

Lake Louise (Banff National Park)

If you’ve heard of one lake in Canada, you’ve probably heard of Lake Louise. One of the most scenic and most photographed lakes in Alberta, its turquoise glacier-fed waters surrounded by the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains make it a sight to remember. In summer, canoe on the glassy waters or take in the view from above on one of the many hikes in the area. In winter, when the cold takes over, you can skate and cross-country ski across the thick ice. This spot is famous for a reason, and there are great things to do in Lake Louise year-round.

Moraine Lake (Banff National Park)

Moraine Lake is a glacier-fed lake found approximately 14 kilometres from Lake Louise and is definitely worth a visit. Picture natural, smooth-as-glass, brilliantly blue water – you’ll quickly realize why this Alberta lake is so popular! Hike to the famous Rockpile, where you’ll be treated to the most beautiful view of the lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks in all its glory. It’s no wonder it’s one of the best photo spots in Banff.

Two Jack Lake (Banff National Park)

Sightseers often flock to Banff National Park’s Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, but don’t skip out on Two Jack Lake. This emerald-green beauty is found approximately 15 minutes from Banff, and is a wonderful spot for hiking, camping, and a family picnic. With views of Mount Rundle in the distance, Two Jack Lake also makes for an amazing sunrise or sunset spot.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (5)

Lake Minnewanka (Banff National Park)

Lake Minnewanka is yet another one of the must-see Alberta lakes to add to your list, and it’s right next door to Two Jack Lake. With an area plentiful in wildlife – think elk, deer, mountain sheep, and bears – there’s also a rich history when it comes to the people who inhabited this land. As early as 10,000 years ago, Indigenous people lived on the land around the lake, leaving behind stone tools and spearheads later found by modern archaeologists. Today, the lake is popular for scuba diving, boating, and fishing, as well as its hiking and biking trails.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (6)

Peyto Lake (Banff National Park)

Named for Bill Peyto, an early park warden and mountain guide of Banff National Park, Peyto Lake is undoubtedly one of Alberta’s most breathtaking turquoise lakes. Popular with photographers, its viewing platform can get crowded in peak season, but hikers can find spots along the various trails with fewer people. Visiting very early in the morning is a great way to beat the crowds, too. And while many people stop at the lookout for photos, not many make the hour trek down to the lake itself – which means you might just get it to yourself after all!

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (7)

Bow Lake (Banff National Park)

Head thirty minutes north of Lake Louise and you’ll find Bow Lake, a superb spot for a picnic or short walk. With its azure waters reflecting the majestic mountains that surround it, it’s difficult to take a bad photo of Bow Lake. It’s also ideal for hikers, especially those who love scrambling, and is the starting point for the hike to Bow Glacier Falls. The lake itself is home to excellent fishing, canoeing, and kayaking.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (8)

Pyramid Lake (Jasper National Park)

Pyramid Lake is a must-see when you’re in the town of Jasper. This kidney-shaped lake, found at the foot of Pyramid Mountain, has everything you need: calm water, views of the Rockies, and even one of the most beautiful beaches in Alberta. There’s also a wheelchair and stroller-friendly wooden bridge that will take you to Pyramid Island for a picnic. Head here for birdwatching, fishing, stargazing, kayaking, or to just take in the serenity you’ll find all around you. If you can spend more than one day here, book a room at the Pyramid Lake Resort to experience the stars shining over the lake and Pyramid mountain.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (9)

Maligne Lake (Jasper National Park)

If you’re looking for jaw-dropping views, you’ve come to the right place. The aquamarine waters of Maligne Lake are unbelievably striking, so it’s no wonder it has grown so famous among sightseers and photographers. Encompassed by mountains, the lake is also home to Spirit Island, a beautiful islet. Expect to see a lot of wildlife here, too, including bald eagles, golden eagles and osprey. There’s so much to do at Maligne Lake: walk along the lakeshore trail, fish for trout, take a relaxing canoe ride, or enjoy afternoon tea at the Maligne Lake Chalet.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (10)

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (11)

Medicine Lake (Jasper National Park)

Approximately 20 kilometres southwest of Jasper lies Medicine Lake, where you’ll find some of the best views in the national park. But Medicine Lake is so much more than a pretty view – in fact, Medicine Lake is not a lake at all, but a geologic anomaly of underwater caves that fluctuate depending on glacial run off. If you visit in winter, you’ll see it’s not much more than a winding river, a far cry from the vast lake it becomes every summer. It’s worth a visit just to learn more about this amazing underground system!

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (12)

Abraham Lake (David Thompson Country)

This manmade lake is notable for its beautiful jade colour water, but many people choose to visit in winter. That’s because Abraham Lake is home to a phenomenon wherein trapped methane causes frozen bubbles to form beneath the lake’s surface; to walk or skate on the frozen lake becomes an almost otherworldly experience. In fact, Abraham Lake in winter is often listed as one of Alberta’s top bucket list destinations!

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (13)

Waterton Lakes (Upper, Middle, and Lower)

Waterton Lakes are an adventure lover’s dream. With so many things to do in Waterton Lakes National Park, you can easily spend a few weeks exploring these lakes in Alberta’s south and still not run out of activities. You’ll be spoiled for choice with hiking trails around the lakes, not to mention the kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, and scuba diving available in the lakes themselves. Oh, and did we mention the absolutely awe-inspiring views?!

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (14)

Grassi Lakes (Canmore/Kananaskis)

The Upper and Lower Grassi Lakes are found near the mountain town of Canmore, and they are an amazing destination if you’d like to enjoy some hiking in Kananaskis. The hike to both of these lakes is one of the most popular here for good reason. These iridescent water make for stunning photography, and history buffs will love searching for the rock paintings near the top of the canyon beyond the lakes; it’s believed that the paintings were made by the Kutenai peoples over 1,000 years ago. The Grassi Lakes definitely deserve their spot on this list of the best lakes in Alberta.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (15)

Spray Lakes (Canmore/Kananaskis)

Spray Lakes, found in Spray Valley Provincial Park, is a gorgeous mountain reservoir in the Kananaskis region. Surprisingly, it doesn’t get as many tourists as Banff National Park or Jasper National Park, which means far fewer people vying for the best views. Kayak, canoe, or fish for trout and whitefish in summer, or try ice fishing or cross-country skiing in winter.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (16)

Upper Kananaskis Lake/Lower Kananaskis Lake

With sweeping mountain views and rich cobalt waters, the Upper and Lower Kananaskis Lakes are two of the most scenic spots in the southern half of the province, and also some of the most famous lakes in Alberta. Head here for some of the best hiking in the province, while those who love fishing will enjoy the abundance of trout, including rainbow, brown, brook, bull, lake, and cutthroat trout.

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (17)

21 of the Most Beautiful Lakes in Alberta (18)
