The Maligne Canyon hike was our first one during our Canadian Rockies vacation and was an excellent introduction to the majestic beauty and diversity of that region. We took the popular hike from the main parking lot and down the canyon, went past the paved and rather crowded trail and for a total 3km before we turned back. The sight... More

I went on a walk down the frozen canyon with a tour guide. Definitely worth going during winter if you are not a skier/snowboarder. Take your camera with you, there are plenty of nice views on the way and down the Canyon.

Great to see such natural wonders - wasn't able to get right into the canyon due to slush puddle but tour guides made it worth the trip- Sundog Tours

Nature at it's finest! We visited during early Autumn so the water was flowing. Makes for some great photos! I'm sure it would be just as beautiful in Winter. Wear some comfy shoes if you plan to walk the length of the canyon. Also take a jumper. It can get really cool near the water.

We go to Jasper quite alot and always enjoy this hike down into the deep canyon. Just be warned it can be abit scary with little ones in tow. The trail is well marked and easy going down but not stroller friendly. We took turns carrying our baby granddaughter down in one of those hiking pack type chairs. On a... More

We went on our own and did not take a guided tour. We rented ice grips from a place in town. It was a Great experience and worth the trip to Jasper!

I loved the sheer vastness of the canyon. The ice is beautiful and makes you gasp with shock at how nature can create such a wonderful sight. It gets very cold down in the canyon and my hands were chilly the first time I went, if you are more active in the canyon then you keep warm, if go with... More

I recently had the pleasure of taking this night walk through the canyon. All I can say is FANTASTIC!! Our group was small and led by David. He was very knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information about the Canyon and water system. His talks were interactive and he had answers to all of our questions! We were fitted with... More

It was great but it was too cold for me to stay there.I had a good experience in my life. I want to visit there in summer so I will be able to compare how it is.

Yes, we have seen a few canyons and gorges. This one is special, however, so narrow and so deep in places, broader and beautiful in others. There's such a range of views. You can walk as far as you want - although when we were there the trail was closed after about 45 minutes walking. It's fairly steep in places... More
