Kids love this because you can walk over the falls on a bridge. Water is rushing so fast through the narrow canyon that it is quite loud. Worth the stop.

Sundog tours did a great job. A 2 hour ice walk with the highlight being the descent into the maligne valley falls to see the frozen waterfalls from ground level. You need to be reasonably sure footed as this is icy at this time of year, even with the supplied snow boots and ice cleats. Joy and frank were enthusiastic... More

Although I don't like going on tourist type tours, this ice walk I did was worth it. If your in the area, go check it out.

Stairs, stairs and then there are stairs! Super pretty, great work out, prime place to see wildlife. Bring your bear spray! I recommend starting at the 5th or 6th bridge turn off before the canyon and walk up to the main canyon. This way you won't miss any of the good stuff. Again I say worth it but if you... More

My husband and I took our 12 year old boy on this excursion and we all really enjoyed our morning. We got picked up from our hotel and our tour guide got us fitted for our special foot ware so we could walk safely on the ice without sliding or falling. Very helpful as you will see if you go....

Sundog Tours provided a wonderful tour made possible by our guide Wes. Our guide was very knowledgable and charismatic which added to the great scenery of the tour. Walking ice covered canyon floor made for a great time. Highly recommend, and hopefully you get Wes as your guide!

I'm so glad we went with our super knowledgeable guide Alicia from Sundog tours. The easy hike was about 3 hours and we learned about local ecosystems and geology. The canyon itself was eerily beautiful. Dress warm - it's cold being surrounded by ice for a couple of hours.

It was the first time that I did such tour. Really impressive. The guide Frank was very helpful and took good care of me to avoid slippery. Thank you Frank and Joy. I enjoyed very much.

The canon is only a short drive from Jasper. There is a path down the side of the canyon and several lengths and difficulty of routes. The views of the river and the canyon walls are spectacular and there is lots of wildlife which can be spotted by the sharp eyed.
