Our second visit to Maligne Lake was to go on the lake boat tour. They had just started the cruise for the season that week and even though it was cold, wet (both rain and snow), and windy, we had a great time.
Maligne Lake is the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies. It is also “home” to Spirit Island, one of the most photographed places in Alberta. It is only accessible by tour boat and non-motorized craft, i.e. canoe or kayak. It would only take about 8 hours to canoe to the island from the Maligne Lake boathouse. We chose to take the tour boat.
Even though it was cold, wet and windy, it was still very beautiful and we loved every minute of it.
