We spent a few hours visiting the Canyon. It is breathtakingly beautiful. One can also enjoy hiking around there while going to all the bridges. A must see in the area.

The canyon carver by the river is up to 30 meters deep ad twisting. You need to pass four bridges to see the best of the canyon and this takes some climbing and about one hour, but it is worth it

Try and make the effort to go all the way to the bottom - if you do that you will get some peace and quiet away from the busloads.

There are a number of short trails at Maligne Canyon, all are great depending on your ability. We did the longest trek to 6th bridge Nd it was really great. Some areas you were alone with no other tourists around, some really fabulous views, wooded areas and trails by the river and waterfalls. Really pretty and a very worth while... More

Maligned canyon was beautiful. A little crowded and a bit of a hike. On the way back to the car we wound up on the opposite side of the canyon where there aren't any fences, be careful if you walk on this side! BRING WATER!

Truly beautiful. The sound of falling water surrounded in wilderness, with safe walking trails. Do need some degree of mobility to go from bridge 2 thru bridge 4 and back. At a few points you can make your way down to the water and put in your hand. The water is very clean, cold and tastes really sweet. As must... More

The scenery here was splendid. Albeit we visited in may 2013 when it was rather damp and a little cold. Spirit Island is well worth the small boat trip - magical and also a sight of the Spiral Tunnels (I think that was the same day on the coach?). And the Athabasca Glacier with it's great ice coaches is fantastic... More

I enjoyed Maligne Canyon, and my rating is relative to other Banff/Jasper attractions--otherwise it is fantastic. We did not plan on stopping here, but our planned trip to Mt. Edith Cavell fell through due to a mudslide that washed out the road, so we had some time to kill. The canyon is very deep and complex. As river below carves... More

Not really impressed, just another place of attraction. The trail is easy, but views are ok. This place has a great restaurant, one could enjoy food here.

we only did the simple walk and did this comfortably. Canadian ideas about walks can sometimes we more like a hike - they are a very fit nation. definitely worth a visit.
