What’s better than one amazing view? Two, of course. Floe Lake hike in B.C. has amazing mountain views and the surrounding water is so clear that it literally acts as a mirror. This means that when you visit you will be treated to not one, but two iconic views that are simply breathtaking. But don’t take our word for it, check out the pictures for yourself.\nThe mountains in B.C. are incredible and they are practically begging for you to get outside and enjoy them.\nArguably, one of the best views is from Floe Lake.\nLocated near East Kootenay G, this spot has amazing mountain views that are beautiful all year long. But what makes the views all the more special and immense is the lake.\nThe water in the area is so clear and calm that it actually acts as a mirror.\nThis means that you are able to get two times the views and a super interesting perspective of the surrounding nature. It's something everyone needs to see in person at least once.\nThe Floe Lake trail is a 19.3 kilometre out and back trail that is considered to be difficult. But don’t let that intimidate you.\nA good pair of hiking shoes, water, and a positive outlook will get you far. Plus, the promise of seeing some of the best views in the province will keep you going.\nView this post on Instagram This past weekend, I packed up my backpack, laced up my boots...and hiked straight into a dream. Floe Lake is an absolutely breathtaking alpine lake surrounded by towering rock faces and lush forest. We were rained on (often), had a strange mid-sized animal digging at our tent in the middle of the night, had multiple encounters with nasty little ticks, and had a muddy and slippery hike down that ended in multiple slips and falls. However, when the sun finally broke and the lake water turned to glass, nothing else could matter or compare to these moments of beauty. ✨ Read My Blog Post: Backpacking Floe Lake - bit.ly/floelake • • • #alpinebabes #womenwhowander #mountaingirls #kootrocks #banffnationalpark A post shared by JENN ✧ TRAVEL + OUTDOOR (@jennexplores) on Jul 16, 2019 at 7:19pm PDT\nThe trailhead begins right off of the highway near the east side of the park. It will start off easy as a flat stretch of the trail crosses two rivers.\nThe hardest part of the trail is near the end when you’re nice and tired from walking.\nWhile you may be sweating and out of breath, find comfort knowing that the views are coming up.\nView this post on Instagram Hike Checklist: ✔️ Century Old Glaciers ✔️ Blanket of Trees ✔️ Reflective Lake ✔️ Gradient Blue Sky ✔️ Odd Mountain Face A post shared by Matthew K.

This is the part where you can stop and take it all in.\nIf you or the wildlife don’t disrupt the water, a mirror effect will be created.\nThe best time of year to visit the lake is in the summer months but if you are more of a winter person, the views will be just as beautiful and covered with pillow-soft snow. Naturally, the water won't be reflecting the same in the winter months.\nView this post on Instagram I have always wanted to wake up early in this exact spot to witness a glorious sunrise! What a privilege to see with my own eyes! #explorebc #explorealberta A post shared by Colleen Douziech (@thedouze) on Oct 14, 2019 at 10:05am PDT\nYou can also bring your dog on the trail as long as they are on a leash.\nWhether it is your first time going or first of many, Floe Lake will not disappoint.\nFloe Lake\nAddress: Kootenay National Park, BC\nWhy You Need To Go: Pictures don't do this lake justice and it really is something you need to see with your own eyes.\nWebsite\n\n\nWe strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures.
