Boya Lake
Tranquil and scenic Boya Lake, along the Cassiar Highway in northern British Columbia.<br />
<br />
Boya Lake is situated on the Liard Plain, an area carved out by glaciers 20,000 years ago. The lake is noted for its colour and clarity. The bottom is composed of marl, a mixture of silt and shell fragments. The crystal clear waters and aqua-marine lake colour are a result of the light reflecting from the marl bottom.<br />

The glacially sculpted landscape around 4,597 hectare Boya Lake Provincial Park  is characterized by elongated ridges, or drumlins and eskers.  The park offers two short hiking trails, a mountain bike trail, and limitless canoeing and kayaking opportunities.  Boya Lake is also one of the few lakes in the north that is warm enough for swimming.
