Alberta Hotel Reservations
Travel north of the city of Banff, to explore the natural attractions in the Rocky Mountains of southern Alberta. Make your way on the Icefields Parkway, past Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, to reach Peyto Lake. This beautiful glacier-fed lake is located in the Waputik Range valley, surrounded by Peyto Peak and Caldron Peak. This turquoise-colored lake in the foothills of the Wapata Icefield, is named after 20th Century trapper Bill Peyto.
Glacial flour, produced from glacial erosion, is deposited into the lake causing the breathtaking blue color. For the best views of the lake, hike the short trail to reach Bow Summit, the highest point along the parkway. The wooden platform at the summit provides excellent viewpoints and remains a popular tourist destination in the park.
