Overall amazing experience! Our guide Lutz was very knowledgeable and engaging and made for a great 3 hour experience. The canyons and frozen waterfalls were breathtaking and I would definitely recommend this to everyone! We went during the freezing week of February at -25 weather and still very much enjoyed it!

Nothing like it... and so special if you are lucky enough to be able to go . With global warming this year they were unable to get into the canyon floor, and last year was very limited.

Decided to do the Ice Walk in Maligne Canyon after seeing a Travel Alberta advertisement. It really is as incredible as the ad depicts. The ice formations are beautiful and the guides were very knowledgeable and led our small group safely across the ice, deep into the canyon on this relatively easy walk. Definitely a must do! We were supplied with warm waterproof boots, cleats and a helmet, enjoyed a hot drink when we returned and transportation to and from Jasper. Yes you could do this walk on your own but I wouldn't recommend it. Our guides helped us traverse dangerous areas of glare ice and dangerous open water sections which would have stopped our progress had we done it on our own plus they provided some interesting facts about underground water, names of the ice formations and area information. Well worth the price!

Our tour guide was Lutz and he was great! He was really knowledgeable on the nature of the area and a very good communicator to the group. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to learn more about the canyon and it's surrounding area. Very fun!

We booked our ice walk tour through “Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit”. I believe there are other companies.

We really enjoyed our ice walk. Our guide was Pal. He was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and happily answered all the questions we had. If we handed him our phones to take a photo of us, he took amazing photos too!

The canyon itself was fascinating. If we had explored it on our own, we would have missed so many details that our guide pointed out... not to mention the safety aspect. Pal was very responsible when it came to ensuring our safety. He even told us how to properly walk on the different types of snow and ice surfaces using the cleats we were given. We had a lot of fun!

We chose to pay the extra to have lunch first at the Maligne Canyon Wilderness Kitchen, and we didn’t regret it! It was definitely worth the $10 extra dollars that we paid. The meal we had was delicious and normally would have cost a lot more than that.

Dave was our guide on this tour. Our vacation was at the end of January but we lucked up on some perfectly beautiful weather for our hike. Dave was of course very knowledgeable about the area we hiked. He was a very good guide that showed us the best way to hike down on the trail. The sights we saw were breathtaking! I am no spring chicken, 69 years young, so I was worried I would have trouble keeping up. I had no problem. The whole hike was basically down into the Canyon where we were picked up and driven back to our hotel. I was glad to be picked up because going back up the Canyon would have been a tougher hike. Some other tour groups were doing that.

Wonderful experience for our family of four!. We took a tour, cleats were given to us which helped walking with confidence on the ice. We walked for about 3 hrs however, were not able to get inside the caves as the ice was not hard enough to hold people walking on it. Recommended activity.
