Peyto Lake

Peyto Lake is situated on the Icefields Parkway about 40 kilometers (30 minutes) north of the town of Lake Louise.

The lake is fed by the runoff from the Peyto Glacier (this glacier is part of the Wapta Icefield) which lies about 5 km to the south of the lake this gives the lake a magnificent blue colour in the summer months due to the mineral content. This is one of the most scenic places in the Rocky Mountains. At the summit of Bow Pass (2088 m.) on the Icefields Parkway is the path to the Peyto Lake overlook. From the parking lot you walk up for about 400 m. in a steep but easy paved trail to a lookout platform that provides a great view of the lake. If you travel the Icefield Parkway, you must not miss this viewpoint
