Johnston Canyon Icewalk

284 reviews
Trying to trek along the frozen Johnston Canyon without a guide could be tough in frigid temperatures with icy walkways. Opt to take this guided tour from Banff, and see wildlife, waterfalls, and, of course, a lot of ice. Plus, this tour provides round-trip transport, ice cleats, a hiking pole, a snack, and a hot cup of cocoa to make things super easy on you.

We happened upon the gardens and took a break from the rushing around of touring and enjoyed the grounds with all the flowers, ponds, and beautiful landscaping. These gardens are very tranquil and well planned. We were amazed at the beautiful variety of flowers and that they were mostly all in bloom given that we were there in September which seems late in the flowering season for us from the Eastern part of the US. If horticulture is in your interest, this is a must see.

We walked here in the evening and the actual building was closed. However, the gardens are exquisite and each one is more beautiful than the last one. We took awesome photos of the gardens. There was some other construction of various gazebos going on, but I would expect that construction to be completed by late September 2019.

This building sits at the head of town, nestled below Sulphur Mountain. The grounds are the setting for Cascade Gardens, a walk though which you will enjoy for the beauty and serenity

The gardens at the Parks Administration Building are under ongoing construction. The different levels and flower beds are wonderful. Small ponds and waterfalls make this a place to visit.

Stopped here on our Brewster City Tour and the gardens are worth a 20 min. stroll. In full bloom, and well designed with unusual burl wood gazebos around. Glad we stopped, and Mark and Simon had a refreshment waiting for us as we got back on the coach - much appreciated!
