Canoe Emerald Lake

2 Miles Round Trip - Point-to-Point Trail

Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park - Search Nearby - Added by Mason Boring

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!

Gorgeous Lake

I didn't canoe the lake but we did explore around it and it really is the prettiest emerald color. When we were there there were tour buses full of people and it was SO crowded, be sure to go early in the morning or later at night!
