Paddle these pristine waters and find some solitude in this lesser known gem!

Beat the crowd at Moraine Lake and paddle Emerald Lake instead! This lake is a must for any Banff/Yoho explorer. It's an easy drive off HWY 1 but stop at the Natural Bridge along the way. There's a restaurant, Cilantro, inside the lodge with a patio along the shore.

Canoe rentals are around $35-$40 per hour. Rent for two and paddle to the North shore for an awesome experience. If you aren't too fond of paddling, there's a easy hiking loop that follows the lake shore.

Don't rock the boat!
