A popular spot to go for locals and tourists alike. You can find this popular gem in Barriere. Its stunning clear waters are similar to what you would see in the Caribbean.

Garibaldi Lake 

The turquoise-coloured water is something everyone should experience at least once. Go for a hike and stumble across the beautiful lake, south of Whistler.

One of BC’s clearest lakes, hence its name. It’s one of six lakes in Wells Gray Provincial Park, in east-central BC. It got its name because of the clear water compared to the muddy North Thompson river nearby.

Emerald Lake

This is by far one of the most beautiful lakes in Canada, not just BC. Its emerald-green water is both stunning and magical. It’s part of Yoho National Park, which is in Field.
