The highlight of Jasper in the winter has to be Maligne Canyon Icewalk. Walk into the depths of this 50m deep limestone canyon to see frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and ancient fossils. 10,000 years in the making, this tour is a great way to spend 3 hours.
What to Expect
Explore the eroded paths through the Maligne Canyon that's nestled within the spectacular Canadian Rockies. Formed over 10,000 years by the forces of the roaring rapids and glacial waters of the Maligne River, the 50-meter deep canyon is one of Jasper National Park's most stunning natural wonders.
In the winter, the cold climate slows nature's erosion process and freezes the canyon and river into ethereal formations of towering frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and rock caverns to investigate.
Designated a “Signature Experience” by the Canadian Tourism Commission, this unforgettable winter tour offers safe access into the depths of the canyon to immerse oneself in the natural, frozen world. Covering about 4km of the area, discover the natural history and geology of the pristine surroundings and marvel at the Maligne Canyon's breathtaking scenery.
