Maligne Lake is Jasper’s oldest attraction. It is the largest lake in the Canadian Rockies, and was known to the Stoney Indians as Chaba Imne-Great Beaver Lake. A one and a half hour boat cruise will take you past glacier studded mountain peaks to world famous Spirit Island. Unsurpassed for the scenery it affords, this cruise is also known for its interpretive quality. While sailing Maligne’s glacial waters you will learn about the natural world of the Canadian Rockies as well as the area’s fascinating cultural heritage.
At world famous Spirit Island passengers disembark for the short walk to the viewpoint. The restaurant and store at the lake are open from spring till fall, so is the cruise.
