Canoe Alberta
Rent canoes right on the edge of the town of Banff.
Morning and evening are great times to paddle your canoe around the lake.


~~  Canoe or Kayak Alberta  ~~
Alberta is known for its clean, sparkling fresh waterways. We have tranquil and peaceful lakes and rivers in the Rockies that will keep you coming back. If you have a speedboat or Seadoo leave it at home. These lakes protect the environment and nourish wildlife, including your wildlife.



Canoe/Kayak Jasper
Park
The Jasper area is a canoeists' delight. There are twenty or more lakes where you will see wildlife in tranquil settings. Easily accessible by vehicle with easy parking are the FIVE LAKES including Lac Beauvert, Patricia and Patricia Lakes, Edith and Annette Lakes (you may see Scuba divers here on the weekend!).  HORSESHOE LAKE is a little known but absolutely beautiful spot to the south of Jasper The lake is a very short hike from the parking lot and highway.
Pyramid Lake and Patricia Lake (very close to each other) both have rentals. PYRAMID LAKE is especially tranquil, complete with its own "almost island". FAIRMONT JASPER LODGE has rentals as well.

47 kilometers southeast of Jasper is MALIGNE LAKE, second largest glacial lake in the World. Rentals are available here and you can canoe the considerable length of the lake if you like.

Lake Louise
Don't fall in these waters are COLD!

Canoe/Kayak Banff Park
In the Banff townsite area you can put your paddle in the water at Two Jack Lake or Johnson Lake. If you want to rent a canoe/kayak, both Lake Louise (what a beautiful spot) and Moraine Lake have boathouses.



For experienced canoers (not for novices) we recommend a downstream run on the Bow River but only in the spring when water levels are high. There are rapids and wildlife sightings that the hearty canoeist will enjoy thoroughly. Check with Banff tourist office before heading out. There are also great whitewater runs and rapids near Jasper.
