Enjoy a scenic boat ride on Swiftcurrent Falls or make use of picnic spots and well-maintained nature trails that ring its shoreline. Surrounded by towering mountain peaks, this picturesque glacial lake lies at 1,487 m (4,878 ft) above sea level. The hotel on the east shore provides spectacular views, and serves as a nucleus for many hiking trails that head up into the mountains. If you cast a fishing rod from the lakeshore, you can hope to catch a decent-sized brook trout.

  • This waterfall is very close to the entrance of the many glaciers campsite. You need to get off road a little bit and get close to a cliff to see it. With the peaks revealing themselves in the background, it can be really breathtaking.
