We arrived two weeks after the wild fires. It was sad to see the devastation and many of the restaurants and businesses had closed early for the season. We were not able to hike or ride as planned but glad we got there.

Take a lake cruise by MV International so see the lake. Matthew was our guide and did a very good job narrating during the trip. Highly recommend.

Although the boat was overcrowded we enjoyed a well narrated tour of the lake seeing wildlife and hearing historical and geological education.

This lake is awesome for its scenery, It will take all your stresses away. Our kids enjoyed skipping rocks and going in for a swim. The water is actually not that bad at all once you get use to it!

Mountain lakes are beautiful, and Upper Waterton Lake is no exception. This body of water is ringed by majestic mountain peaks which accentuate its beauty.
