Info. The Vermilion Lakes in the Canadian Rocky Mountains
Located in Alberta’s Banff National Park, Vermilion Lakes are a series of spectacular lakes offering magnificent views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The swampy ground here makes it an attractive spot for viewing wildlife such as moose, beavers, elk and bear. Visitors usually explore this site during sunrise or sunset to experience the dazzling colours of the sky, reflected in the still waters. Those seeking a closer look at the expansive alpine valleys and peaks can further hike the trails or paddle across the lakes.
