Peyto Lake

Banff National Park, Canada

A perfect pit stop off Icefields Parkway on the way to Jasper and the Columbia Icefield! It’s a short walk uphill to get to this viewpoint of Peyto Lake and it’s glacier. You can continue up the hill if you would like, for more aerial views of the valley from Bow Summit Lookout. If we had, had more time I would have loved to do it but we wanted to get to see Athabasca Glacier before the sun got too low. If you haven’t been to see Peyto Lake, YOU MUST GO!
