Paddling Two Jack Lake

Paddle enthusiasts and apprentices alike are drawn to the calm waters of Two Jack Lake. With a tranquil canal and little coves sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds, it only takes a few moments on the shores of Two Jack to understand why it’s one of Banff’s favourite canoe, kayak and SUPing locales.

Feel the shift in the elements as you launch your into the canal and move from land to water. Find balance, inside and out, as your paddle arcs deeply into the water and propels you across the aquamarine surface towards the open lake and Mount Rundle poised above.
