Join a small-group tour and hike down into the gorges of Maligne Canyon. This hike takes you past unusual geological formations, behind frozen waterfalls, and into caves made of ice. Explore the deepest canyon in the Canadian Rocky Mountains with a guide who helps you discover the area and provides lots of fascinating facts about Jasper and its history.

What to Expect

Arrange to be picked up from your hotel or meet your guide at the downtown tour offices for the ride to Maligne Canyon, the deepest accessible gorge in the Canadian Rockies. Dress warmly for the experience, which runs in the morning or in the afternoon, for your convenience. Winter boots and ice cleats are provided for your trek across the frozen river.

Explore ice caves and frozen waterfalls from the valley floor, as your guide tells the story of the gorge, the geology that formed it, and the history of the area.

The Maligne Canyon ice walk is an active way to spend a few hours—not all the winter activities in Jasper involve the ski hills! You will end the tour at your selected drop-off point in town.

Stunning views, unique and incredible experience

Would highly recommend booking this excursion, some of the most stunning frozen rivers and waterfalls which you can walk on (depending on the climate) and touch. The canyon is amazing, it requires a little effort but definitely rewarding. The guides are super friendly and helpful...More

Embracing Winter!

Loved the Ice Walk - breathtaking scenery - enjoyed living in and exploring the outdoors during winter. Our summers are so short that if you don't get out and embrace the winter, it really cuts down on life. So if you're looking for a beautiful...More

I’m pretty sure the ice is year round. It’s an amazing trek with some incredible formations, but definitely take a tour guide. I recommend Sundog tours. Ask for Pat as your guide!!

Well my wife and I are in our late 60's. We are fairly fit for our age. There was some climbing to the cave. A little of it somewhat steep. The cave area was slippery in places, but not bad. We didn't find it very hard.
