This is the Moraine lake, in Alberta, which is among the best hikes in Canada according to Digest Canada. Their advice: Take the short Rock Pile Trail for a beautiful view over the lake and surrounding mountains... and do double check for any incoming grizzly bear with Parks Canada before going in ;-)

Can you see the room? The "Mirror cube" can be found at the Treehotel in the small town of Lulea, just about 64 kilometers from the Artic circle! Too bad it costs an eye to spend the night: €460 per night for 2 (€320 single). Breakfast buffet included, thank you very much.
