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

Bring your winter gear because those hills can be tricky in the snow but it was a great day! The scenery is beautiful.

Maligne Canyon offers breath taking views. I recommend taking 2 to 4 hours walking around and enjoying what nature has given us. The canyon is very family friendly. Since this does not cost any money I highly recommend Maligne Canyon if you are staying in...More

Great hike in the winter to see frozen waterfalls. I do recommend spikes or some sort of show traction as the stairs and bridges are quite icy. The views are breath taking and you may even get to see some ice climbers on the falls.

This hike is amazing. Beautiful scenery. Would recommend spikes for bottom of shoes as it can be icy. be prepared to walk steep up hill and downhill. Railings the whole way through to help and safety.

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.
