Maligne Canyon in the summer is beautiful! In the winter I would avoid it, you cannot see much from the path, and it is dreadfully icy. If you are going to see the canyons I would recommend booking an ice walk, that would most likely give you a better view. We were going to go that weekend, but it was... More

Well we went with a group called Sun Dog Tours and our Guide was Alicia. It was great from the beginning, on the way to pick up people she kept us informed about the area and answered any questions we had. The trip down the canyon was awesome and the frozen water falls were great to see. I would not... More

In the winter, this is the BEST activity to do in Jasper. Rent ice spikes for your shoes at one of the sporting goods stores in Jasper and walk up from Bridge 5. Don't bother with the expense of a guide.

Easy parking and a short walk down to the canyon. The water was very impressive, immensely powerful as you would expect from the Rockies.

Captivating and mesmerizing are the only two words necessary for this experience. Oh wait! Alicia, our guide, full of pep, humorous and provided us with more knowledge than I could ever grasp in one trip. You rock girl!

Although you can do this ice walk on your own, I found going out with Alicia from Sun Dog tours 100% worth the money! You get a pair of winter rubber boots and cleats to help navigate the icy terrain better. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the local sites, wildlife, dangers and picturesque places! She took some great pictures of... More

We just finished doing the Maligne Canyon ice walk. Was a nice little activity to do in the winter, amazing pictures and view. The water is all gone so you are walking on top of where the water normally flows. The tour was worth it to get all the info, but not exactly necessary if you can figure out the... More

Took a 6 and 8 year old, they loved it and not too difficult at all. Dress like you would to go skiing and you'll be fine. Kids wanted to go back the next day so we too them again.

The frozen ice formations were spectacular, and the Sundog trip guide Alicia went above and beyond. Her passion and expertise were prevalent throughout, and her knowledge and photo-taking skills were superb. I would recommend this trip to anyone planning to have a good 2-3 hour filler. The scenery was fantastic.
