Full description
Experience magical mountains, alpine meadows and thrilling rivers on this 5.5-hour tour to the Maligne Valley from Jasper. Part of the Jasper National Park, the valley is home to magnificent lakes and outstanding hiking trails.

Following a pick-up from your Jasper hotel, you will go on a short hike past the sheer 100-foot walls of Maligne Canyon. Then, take a scenic drive to Maligne Lake and the "disappearing" Medicine Lake. Look out for elk and moose as you drive.

Maligne Lake is the second largest glacial fed lake in the world. It drains into the Maligne River and continues down to Medicine Lake. You will visit what is arguably the most extensive karst system - or underground river system - in Canada.

An underground network of caves remains largely out of reach to visitors, keeping it a mystery for future exploration. Your professional guide will expand on this inscrutable place during an immersive narrative.

During the summer season you can join an inclusive boat cruise to Spirit Island, the only means of reaching the isolated island, for serene views of the stunning alpine scenery. During the rest of the year you can enjoy a guided hike along the Mary Schaffer Loop. Depending on the time of the year, you will enjoy wildlife viewings in the area around Maligne Canyon, including moose, sheep, caribou and bears.

Jump back on the bus for your return journey and hotel drop-off in Jasper, at the heart of Canada’s largest Rocky Mountain national park.
