The Emerald Lake in Whitehorse, Canada attracts many tourists throughout the year who flock here to experience the spectacular views and scenery that are to be found in an area that is the most photographed site in the Yukon.

The lake itself is famous for its turquoise blue and green waters, the amazingly vivid blue-green colour of this lake is not caused by glacial silt but by sunlight reflecting off the white layer of “Marl” – Calcium Carbonate clay – which is found on the bottom of the lake.

This area is perfect for walks, bike rides, hiking and the horse back tours and that are operated in this area are fun for all the family.
