Journey across the Athabasca river to Maligne Lake, via a stop at Maligne Canyon for sweeping views of a series of magnificent waterfalls as the river passes through the canyon. Farther up the valley, visit Medicine Lake, a basin that fills up during spring and summer from glacier melt before being reduced to a trickling stream by October. On Maligne Lake, take a boat cruise bound for Spirit Island and enjoy the scenery along the way.
