Cruising along the Icefield Parkway is of course jaw dropping. But if you have a chance to take the Maligne Lake cruise to Spirit Island, you'll take your experience to another level. You simply can't stop being amazed by the views.

If you're going to visit Maligne Lake, then a boat ride to Spirit Island is a must. The stay there is a little short, but it was an unforgettable experience.

We took the 30 minute cruise around the lake and over the Spirit Island. Sit back and enjoy the scenery created by Mother Nature on one of her better days.

Loved the cruise and the interesting facts that the guides provided (Moe and M??). Spirit island was beautiful and the time there was long enough.
