3-3.5 hours Tour
Drive 10 minutes north of Jasper for an ice-walk adventure you won’t soon forget.
Named for its atmosphere, Maligne Canyon is the deepest canyon in the park. The hardiest souls climb its sheets of ice, but anyone can strap on anti-slip cleats to venture through the frozen canyon.
This is one of Jasper’s most popular and impressive winter adventures. Your tour guide will take you to the bottom of the Maligne Canyon – the deepest accessible canyon in Jasper National Park – where you will explore frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and incredible ice formations. You will learn about Jasper’s Maligne Valley, Karst topography, and the mystery of the “disappearing” Medicine Lake.
The Maligne Canyon Icewalk Tour is a great option for anyone who does not ski or snowboard. Or if you are in for the week, get a full morning in on the slopes and then head into the Canyon for the afternoon. The Icewalk Tour covers approximately 3.5 kms (2.1 miles) and is mostly downhill.
Participants are required to dress appropriately for the weather. Pick-ups and drop-offs available from all Jasper accommodations. Please indicate your shoe size when booking as warm boots ice cleats will be provided.
