Lake Peyto is located in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies and is completely fed by the meltwater of the glacier. The lake was named after Bill Peyto, a researcher who discovered this miracle of nature.

In summer the glacier begins to melt more intensively, and special particles enter the water, which color the lake in bright turquoise color.
