Pristine and picturesque
If you’re looking for front row seats to calming waters with a backdrop of mountains, you’ve come to the right place. At the base of Pyramid Mountain in Jasper National Park, sits the gentle Pyramid Lake. A year-round destination for visitors, this area offers activities ranging from cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winters to hiking, fishing, and paddling in the summers. Popular for birdwatching, visitors with a sharp eye will likely be able to spot chickadee, herons, and Barrow’s Goldeneyes.
