Getting to the Maligne Lake Cruise

From the east end of the town site of Jasper, follow highway 16 east for 3 km and take the turnoff for Maligne Lake Road to the right, proceed over the iron bridge across the Athabasca river, stay left at the fork in the road and then proceed for 48 km until you arrive at Maligne Lake. Watch for “animal jam” slowdowns. When you reach the Maligne Lake area the first public parking lot is to the left. After parking, follow the short trail through a grove of trees to Maligne Lake, the ticket office, boathouse, Day Lodge, and the Historic Chalet. We highly recommend you allow 1-1.5 hours to drive from Jasper to Maligne Lake.

Our cruises fill quickly. We highly recommend booking a cruise time before you visit.

Tip: Near the beginning of the Maligne Lake Road is Maligne Canyon, which is a very popular and rewarding hike. If you have a cruise time booked at Maligne Lake, we recommend enjoying the canyon hike on your return trip to Jasper, so you don’t miss your cruise!
