A really fun Canyon crawl. We started from Fifth Bridge and made our way up through the slot Canyon. There are waterfalls, and caves to explore. Just pure beauty. Make sure you have trekking poles and Microspikes to navigate the ice.

So stunningly beautiful, easy to access and we spent a fun couple of hours here. Worth a visit while in the Jasper region.

In winter it is possible to walk through the canyon on the frozen river. In summer the canyon bottom is a raging river that sweeps away anything in its path. But in winter one can walk amidst frozen waterfalls and icefalls along the canyon wall. Look up at the steep walls and imagine peering down from above. Soon summer will... More

The maligne canyon is a great short hike through some beautiful scenery. There are a 5 or 6 bridges but its easy to miss the first one (near the toilets!). Just remember that its downhill and basically a one-way so you have to go back up when you want to leave! What's great is that there are trails on either... More

Managed to walk the first three bridges in Maligne Canyon but it is downhill so you end up having to walk back up again so for me being so unfit I felt that the first three bridges was far enough. This was a lovely walk with quite a few people arriving after we got there and we had to pass... More

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.
