Discover one of Jasper’s most impressive natural wonders. Meet your friendly and highly trained tour guide before journeying to the bottom of the Maligne Canyon – the deepest accessible canyon in Jasper National Park.

Explore frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and incredible ice formations, marveling at the power of nature. Learn about Jasper’s Maligne Valley, Karst topography, and the mystery of the “disappearing” Medicine Lake.  Be sure to take photographs by the stunning geological features, and the huge frozen waterfalls.

A nice hike through the canyon with a very nice and well informed guide. Much has been said about the creation and wildlife in the canyon. The group was a good size and you hardly met any other hikers on the way. Unfortunately the weather was too warm, so not everything was frozen over, but still a breathtaking experience. Those who hike and love nature will not be disappointed here, even if the hike is not particularly long. Therefore, you can do it if you don't hike often.

Beautiful walk right down into the canyon only accessible in winter. Super knowledgeable guide Wes with Sundog Tours was obviously a local and explained much of what happens in the canyon wrt water flow especially. Great value adventure that anyone can do as you start at the top and work your way down.

Very interesting, learned a lot about ice!

Great tour to do on your own or with others. Interesting guide and all the necessities are included such as transport, helmets, warm boots ( if you need them) and ice cleats. Wonderful way to explore Jasper trails in the winter.
