A walk through the Maligne Canyon in winter is a real treat that shouldn't be missed. The majesty of descending into a canyon amidst the cascading frozen waterfalls and then walking along the frozen river beneath is quite simply breath-taking! It is possible to do...More

We did a tour of the canyon in the winter it was amazing to see. Book a tour with a local agent and go. You do need proper shoes and they will take you where it is safe to walk on the ice. Wrap up...More

This weekend was our first winter visit to Maligne Canyon. It was beautiful in the winter to walk along the creek and on the frozen part. We walked on the ice without a guide and were fine, but if you are uneasy about going on...More

Good times in the canyon in perfect warm winter weather. A few km hike through the edges of the river and canyon and then an up close and personal hike inside the frozen canyon with waterfalls, creeks and caves.

Nice hiking trail, in the winter wear appropriate gear and boots with spikes. We wished we brought ski pants after seeing kids scoot down the steep areas on their butts!

Nice day for a walk we were sheltered from the wind. Stayed up in the sunshine instead of walking down below in the canyons. Watched ice climbers down the crevices. Wear ice cleats and take hiking poles if possible.

This attraction is about six miles from Jasper and offers several walks over 2-6 bridges. We chose the shorter walk over two bridges. The path was stony but level and easy. You can see waterfalls and ravines. I wouldn't call the scenery breathtaking but it...More

We did the ice walk through the Canyon in February and it was spectacular. We were there on a Wednesday, and it wasn't too crowded. We decided against a guided tour as I like to take my time taking pictures, and don't like to have...More

This is a great place to visit in the winter. The frozen wonderland is basically a slice through the earth creating a beautiful narrow canyon, and absolutely amazing. They have a great trail, well-marked, well-fenced, and safe even when the ground is snow-packed. Incredible photo...More

Yes sort of you need to ride a bus to walk on the icefields, I am not sure if you need a guide after arrival....if you meant hiking in Maligne canyons in the winter when it is frozen I am sure you would need a guide for that... More

On our own. Just follow the signs to Maligne Canyon. No need to go with a group it’s a very easy walk.
