3. Moraine Lake, Canada

One of the purest and most beautiful lakes in the world is located in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Moraine Lake, which features turquoise water and a mountainous surrounding, is hidden in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. While many people will visit Moraine Lake to fish, hike, or stay at the Moraine Lake Lodge, there are other options as well.

One of the most popular Moraine Lake activities, and o­ne that has been going strong for over a century, is canoeing. If you choose to canoe o­n Moraine Lake, be sure to allow at least o­ne hour for your trip. 1.5 hours would be ideal, as this would give you enough time to visit and experience everything the lake has to offer. If you would prefer to see Moraine Lake by air, this is also a possibility. There are helicopter tours available. And if you don't like heights and have no interest in doing your own paddling, a gondola ride is always o­n offer.
