Fantastic guided tour into the canyon

Well worth the money, a few tricky parts in the winter, but well worth it to see frozen waterfalls and river carved canyons.

There are far less tourists at Maligne Canyon in the winter than the summer. The frozen falls in the deep limestone canyon are very pretty and worth the short hike.

I did not expect much before going there as this place is not well advertised therefore did not have high expectations. But once there it was just breathtaking. Definitely recommend!!!

We took the Maligne Canyon Walk in the afternoon. Our guide Alicia told us it would be about a 3.5 km walk, although she referred to it as a 'hike' several times. Our group of about 10 people ranged in aged from 18 to mid 70's. The younger you were the easier it was but help was given to the... More

You can go for a short walk down a path with lots of railings and sights to see or go on long hikes. Winter you can go too, just need proper foot wear!! Need a care to go see

There really isn't much option for things to do in Jasper in winter if you don't ski, so for us this was the only option. The drive to the canyon is pretty spectacular, although the bus was absolutely freezing. I understand that if the heating is turned on then the windows fog up, but frankly I'd choose warmth over scenery... More

We purchased ice cleats for our boots (about 5-7 pair) and skipped the guided tour - ran into a couple of tours and am sure glad we were on our own

Our guide Dieter made this trip. A very spritely & fit 72 year old, he was a humerous & very knowledgable guide. The canyon ice is amazing & a must do in Jasper. It was extremely cold (-23 degrees) & the canyon ice was in pristine condition the day we went. Rug up well if you go. Highly recommended.

There are alot of tours to do this, but if you are going in the winter and everything is frozen. You can go a lot farther than the tours and actually take your time to walk the whole canyon and take pictures and admire the view from within the canyon.
