Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada is a world famous tourist destination spot. Famed for its stunning scenery, the lake offers hiking trails, mountain biking, horse riding, kayaking and rock climbing in summer. Nearby the Lake Louise Ski Area offers amenities for alpine and cross-country skiing in the winter, but what about Moraine Lake?

Less visited but even more scenic and spectacular, Moraine Lake is located in an area known as the Valley of the Ten Peaks. On arriving at Moraine Lake most people find themselves breathless before they’ve even set foot out the car. The lake itself is glacially fed and the refraction of light from the ‘rock flour’ lends the water a magnificent crystal blue sheen – a sight which never fails to take your breath away.

The valley which the lake rests within is surrounded by ten lofty mountains (hence the name) and boasts a large strand of larch trees beneath the third highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. It’s no wonder the Canadians once had the view of this spectacular area on the back of their $20 bills!

Exploring the lakes

Renting a car in Alberta is easy with Avis and our rental options are sure to make the 14 kilometre journey from the hamlet of Lake Louise to Moraine Lake an accessible and worthwhile addition to any trip to the region.

Additional winter products available with our Canada car rental include snow tyres, snow chains and ski racks. These can all make your journey safer and more convenient when driving in tricky conditions and are essential if you plan to see this lake at its most beautiful – during the winter.

The most direct way of reaching Moraine Lake from the UK is to fly direct to Calgary. From there, car hire in Canada makes the region easily accessible. Once at Lake Moraine you can hike the mountain trails, rent a canoe or sit and eat lunch in Moraine Lake Lodge. Alternatively, simply stand back and drink in one of the most spectacular lakeside views the world has to offer; you’ll only regret it later if you don’t.
