View point: Spirit Is­land

Grazia (UK) - - Contents -

Over­looked by jagged moun­tain peaks, and with its cool turquoise water fed by sur­round­ing glaciers, Maligne Lake in the Cana­dian Rock­ies is a mag­i­cal place. Within the lake is Spirit Is­land, a grove of trees and pris­tine na­ture that is con­nected to the main­land by a shal­low isth­mus, be­com­ing an isle in sum­mer when the glaciers melt and lake is filled. Only ac­ces­si­ble by boat, it’s a four-hour pad­dle from the near­est dock close to the town of Jasper, or you can take a cruise.
