Very well marked trail and as we were dressed for the elements; found the canyon hike to bridge 5 and back was easy to do. The views of the frozen falls and water running under were breathtaking.

We did a 3 hour Maligne canyon tour with Sundog and can highly recommend it. Our guide Steve was really helpful and knowledgeable. The canyon wasn’t fully frozen over which meant we couldn’t walk through the whole length of it but this didn’t really detract...More

We hike the canyon quite often. Watching the ice climbers and walking on the frozen creek is always fun. Our kids love exploring and sliding on the slippery slopes. If you are not sure on your feet make sure to pick up some ice spikes...More

We only walked along the rim of the canyon to the 2nd bridge which is the highest point, standing more than 50 metres above the water. It's quite a gentle walk to get there and sight of the canyon and waterfalls is spectacular. It is...More

Great frozen waterfalls need crampons for the trail as it is very slippery. The ice climbers looked very skilled certainly not for the faint hearted. Pity the ice walk was not going as the river was not completely frozen

The last time I was here was in March 2014, and the Gorge was more frozen over, to the extent that you could walk on the gorge floor. But this time despite the total freeze, the beautify and fascination of the gorge is not lost....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.
