Lake Louise. Banff National Park, Alberta
Lake Louise is quite small, but extremely spectacular. with emerald green water and with breathtaking mountains around. This turquoise colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers. Max length of Lake Louise is 2.0 km (1.2 mi), max width 0.5 km (0.31 mi). max depth 70 m (230 ft) and surface area 0.8 km2 (0.31 sq mi).
It’s one of Banff National Park’s main draws, not only for the scenery, but also for its outdoor activities, which include, SUP'ing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, ice climbing and ice fishing.
Emerald Lake. Yoho National Park, British Columbia
It is the largest of Yoho's lakes and ponds, as well as one of the park's premier tourist attractions. The lake is surrounded by President Mountain Mountains, as well as Burgess Mountain and Wapta Mountain.
Because of high altitude, the lake is frozen from November until June. The sharp turquoise color of the water caused by powdered limestone is most spectacular in July when the snow melts from the surrounding mountains.
Here you can also rent a boat, kayak or paddle board and explore 91-ha lake.
Garibaldi Lake. Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia
Garibaldi Lake is also turquoise coloured alpine lake in British Columbia, Canada Accurately it is in Garibaldi Provincial Park at an elevation of 1,484 metres above sea level. The turquoise color of the lake's water is due to the glacial flour in its meltwater from its two primary inflows
Concern over barrier instability due to volcanic, tectonic or heavy rainfall activity prompted the provincial government in 1981. Post an area immediately below it, a precarious human habitat.
Garibaldi Lake stretches for over 990 hectare between Whistler and Squamish. It’s only accessible by hiking along the nearly nine kilometre Garibaldi Lake Trail. this is not the most convenient approach, but if you have an inflatable board and are not afraid to walk a few kilometers, maybe this lake is worth your attention.
