Full description
Enjoy a 5.5-hour scenic sightseeing minibus tour of Jasper National Park and see the stunning scenery of the Maligne Valley.

Following a pick-up from your accommodation in Jasper, climb aboard a 21-seat tour bus for the comfortable drive up the valley. Your first stop will be at Maligne Canyon where you can get off and stretch your legs on an easy 30-minute walk. Stroll around the upper reaches of the Canyon to see the deepest portion at 164 feet, including a thundering waterfall.

Re-board your bus and drive on through stunning landscapes en route to Medicine Lake. Here the tour will make a 10-minute stop for photos, and your guide will explain why this is known locally as the "disappearing lake."

Highly recommend this activity. Beautiful scenery. Let someone else drive so you can enjoy the view. The water fall was amazing and the trail around the falls was short and easy to walk. The guide was very knowledgeable and focused on making our trip the best possible. If you do nothing else - take the Maligne Lake Cruise it is the highlight of the day. What a view!!!!!!!!!!! be prepared to take a lot of photos. One of the highlights of our two week vacation to Banff, Lake Louis, Ice Fields and Jasper.

Fantastic Tour in Jasper

We had an excellent day on our tour to Maligne Lake. Our guide John picked us up promptly and was instantly very friendly. The drive to Maligne Lake was great and it was a really good way to see parts of Jasper that we otherwise wouldn't have. John was very knowledgeable and informative and told us lots of interesting facts about local wildlife. His guided tour was excellent and he shared just the right amount of information; not too over the top or an information overload. We also stopped along the way at a few interesting points which was great. Once we arrived at Maligne lake we had a bit of time to get a drink which was really nice before we boarded the boat. The boat ride was excellent and the guide Mia and Captain Jen were very welcoming and told us lots of interesting facts about the lake. Once arrived at the shore we had a great view of spirit island and took some fantastic shots of Maligne Lake. Overall the whole tour was amazing (even though we didn't see any wildlife!)
