10 Photos that will inspire you to visit the lakes of Canada

posted in: Canada | 12

As it’s Canada’s 150th birthday this year, we at The Curious Explorers would love to show you why people from all around the world should visit this amazing country. Canada has everything, from mountains, lakes, flat lands, stunning city skylines to islands, ocean (there’s three of them to check out!), and the variety of different dialects and languages.


Today we have a look at some of the lakes of Canada as the final part of our Canada 150 celebration posts. Canada has 31,752 lakes and over 500 of them are bigger than all the cities combined but here we show you the best of the lakes from British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.

This post shows ten photos which Danik took over two trips to Canada back in the summers of 2010 and 2015 and hopefully this will inspire you guys to visit this amazing part of the country. Claire hasn’t been to Canada yet but we are pleased to announce that we are doing a road trip from Vancouver to St John’s in 2018, the flight tickets have been brought and we can’t wait to drive the whole length of the Trans-Canadian-Highway-1 and we are already planning the trip. Of course there are probably over ten million lakes in Canada but these are the best ones which Danik has come across. Enjoy guys and thank you for following our Canada 150 posts over the last eleven days. Here’s to another great 150 years for Canada.

  3. Canada, sure, has some great lakes. They are worth visiting.

  4. Amazing Photo’s !! I have dreams of maybe moving to Canada one day and this is why and this post has inspired me even more. Don’t get me wrong I love exploring cities but I am more of a nature type girl. I feel like Canada would be the ideal place for me

  5. Harrison lake is one of my faves! When you’re road tripping on highway one, check out the HI at Shuswap lake- I just got back from camping there and it’s definitely worth it!

  6. Your Vancouver to St John’s road trip sounds amazing, have fun on that! Also interesting fact about the number of lakes in the country! I had no idea there was so many. Great pictures too. I think Emerald Lake and Moraine Lake are probably my favourites.

  8. ok ok I’m inspired! I do love a lake view. I’m currently staying in Lake Atitlan in Guatemala (which is beautiful by the way if you haven’t been). I especially love the Lake Moraine image. Somewhere I will have to visit in Canada.

  9. As if i don’t have enough reasons to go to Canada! You’re photos are stunning.

    Lake Moraine and Lake Louise are both top of the list of lakes I’d love to visit! I’ll be honest – I hadn’t heard of many of the others but wow are they gorgeous or what?! I think a Canada road trip is in order!!

  11. This post and these pictures definitely inspire me to get to Canada faster! I have always wanted to go to Lake Moraine and Lake Louise. Nice timing on this post with their 150th anniversary. Canada is a beautiful country that we need to visit asap!

  12. I haven’t been to Canada yet. I must say that I even prefer lakes to the see, so it is a great idea to see the lakes when in Canada. Thanks for awesome pictures and travel inspiration!
