Drove down to Maligne Lake whilst staying in Jasper. Boat trip to Spirit Island is expensive, but do not miss it. This is quite simply possibly the most naturally beautiful place I have ever visited. Awesome. There are a number of well marked walks -...More

My husband and I visited Maligne Lake just after they had some snow. Hiking around the lake was very difficult and most of the trails were closed. We went on the cruise and were not really sure what to expect. What a surprise to experience...More

Jasper national park offers 3 ingredients: ice peaks, woods and lakes. Maligne is just another lake in the same setting as all the others. They offer a boat tour on the lake for 72 canadian dollar per person. This is not worth your money.

The lake sure is nice. But its nothing compared to the hike you can take up the bald hill. If you have the time, about 4-5 hours, you need to hike up there

I have no idea as I am not a doctor but I will say the boat tour is 90 minutes and very smooth. They are the only motorized boats on the lake and go slow as not to disturb the canoers.
