Maligne Lake boat cruise to Spirit Island

Spirit Island is a small tied island in Maligne Lake, Jasper, and stands out as one of the most iconic sceneries in the region. 

Maligne Lake boat cruise to Spirit Island

A short boat cruise to Spirit Island takes you to one of the most photographed places in Canada. Nestled on the shores of beautiful Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park,the image of Spirit Island is recognised around the world. 

The island is a spiritual place for the Stoney Nakoda First Nation, who believe that mountains are physical representations of their ancestors. The fact that Spirit Island is surrounded on three sides by the same mountain range is very rare and makes it particularly significant to the Nakoda people.

The island is extremely remote and access is limited due to its geography. Located on a secluded shore in a cold lake surrounded by high peaks and glacier, 14 km from the docks at Home Bay, the only way to truly experience this iconic island is by boat.
