Lake Minnewanka is a glacial lake located in the eastern area of Banff National Park in Canada, about five kilometers northeast of the Banff townsite. The Lake stretches as far as the eye can see and continues on another 2 bends. It is one of the deepest and coldest lakes. Weather is unpredictable in the mountains and it is no different at Lake Minnewanka. Dress in layers and come prepared for strong winds that could pick up at a moments notice. As scenic as the lake is, because of fresh mountain runoff that accumulates at this lake, it is extremely cold. Coupled with a wind storm, anyone out on the lake could be in a dangerous situation. Hikers will find great joy trekking at the many paths around Lake Minnewanka. Lots of wildlife and lots of mesmerizing sceneries abound. Make sure you charge up your camera, bring extra memory cards, and capture away. There is a free shuttle bus that goes there, and it is also only about 20 minutes to drive. If you are a little adventurous, drive to the top of the mountain to see the beautiful lake and enjoy playing with the wild animals. Just be cautious, there are bears, mountain goats, groundhogs and a lot more...
