Getting to Maligne Lake

We were travelling from Edmonton towards Mt Robson with a rental car that we had for our road trip. We had planned to stop at the lake and see what was there to do and either take out a canoe or head on a boat cruise.


Top Tips:

  • We had the gypsy app installed on our phones which educated and directed us during our journey. It was like having a private tour guide without the inconvenience of keeping to their schedule.

  • Don't forget to get your Parcs Pass otherwise you will not have access to the national park.
