Good signage explains how the canyon was formed, fossils and more. A short walk gives you the opportunity for epic photos and then return to the visitor center for a great gift shop and cafeteria restaurant.

We had a wonderful tour through Maligne canyon Ice walk with Lutz. We were lucky to have clear weather after a drizzly morning. First Lutz took us into town to be fitted with waterproof boots and spike for the ice walking. Lutz was very informative of the formations that we passed through. He managed to find the safest and less... More

This place was amazing. There are several walks/trails You can do. I would recommend walking off the path as you get to see a lot of the canyon. People were ice climbing and you can walk through the canyon where in the summer water would be running. There's also a small cave you can you through which is hard to... More

We absolutely loved our tour of the Ice walk. Our guide Chris was really fun and had lots to show us. It was a spectacular walk. We were in awe of the sights. We took our time and enjoyed it all. I'm so very glad that we booked the tour. We never would have been as adventurous on our own.

We were the only ones there this morning when we first arrived. Beautiful in the snow with cool looking ice. We only walked around the top as we are in our seventies, but people do walk up the canyon. Since there was fresh snow, it was safe to walk when we were there, but could be a challenge if icy.

The Inn & Suites recommended we go out for the IceWalk tour. We did it our last day. It was amazing! Plus, only the two of us we're on the tour... wonderful! Definitely recommend going on the IceWalk tour of Maligne Canyon:)

Drive to the parking lot right at the canyon (not the one at 5th bridge which is a longer hike that could also be nice), then walk from the 1st bridge to past the 3rd bridge - there's a way to access the canyon floor from there (warning signs that say at your own risk, guides are recommended). Heavy duty... More
