This is one of Jasper’s most popular and impressive winter adventures. Your Sundog tour guide will take you to the bottom of the Maligne Canyon – the deepest accessible canyon in Jasper National Park – where you will explore frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and incredible ice formations. You will learn about Jasper’s Maligne Valley, Karst topography, and the mystery of the “disappearing” Medicine Lake.

The Maligne Canyon Icewalk Tour is a great option for anyone who does not ski or snowboard. Or if you are in for the week, get a full morning in on the slopes and than head into the Canyon for the afternoon.  The Icewalk Tour covers approximately 3.5 kms (2.1 miles) and is mostly downhill. Participants are required to dress appropriately for the weather.  Pick-ups and drop-offs available from all Jasper accommodations.  Please indicate your shoe size when booking as warm boots ice cleats will be provided.

**This excursion is weather dependent, please confirm your booking with us 24 hours prior to departure.**
