Joffre lake is a glacier lake in BC, Canada. The colour of the lake will make you speechless. Canada is the most exciting country that I have ever visited. The entire of Southwest of British Columbia is surrounded by beautiful mountains in the Coast Mountain range. In Vancouver, there are mountains in the North Shore (Cypress, Grouse and Seymour), meanwhile, 2 hours drive north lies Whistler which is a world renown resort.

Besides mountains, you can find glacial lakes with fantastic crystal aquatic blue and green waters. The picture above is from Joffre Lakes Provincial Park. There are 3 lakes here with  different sizes, the best one is the third lake because it is the biggest and has the background of the mountain feeding it the glacial waters.

Things To do

Camping and Polar bear swimming, make sure to register your camping backcountry permit from BC parks or you might be get fine. Swimming on the lake it is very challanging, as the water temperature arround -1 on summer.
