Maligne Lake is located about 44km (27 miles) south of Jasper town. And there is a boat tours run to Spirit Island in the spring to autumn season. My visit to the lake was a little late for the boat tours on the very last evening I visited back in September, 2014. I was still very happy with the condition of the dark night skies that evening. On the way to Maligne Lake, you will pass by Medicine Lake. And was having some very nice sunset color on the side of the mountain when I pass by this spot.
And the Boat House below is on the north side of Maligne Lake. And don’t worry… these are not the boat they use to take you to the south side of the lake. Which is a 22km ride!! 🙂
