There really isn't much option for things to do in Jasper in winter if you don't ski, so for us this was the only option. The drive to the canyon is pretty spectacular, although the bus was absolutely freezing. I understand that if the heating is turned on then the windows fog up, but frankly I'd choose warmth over scenery... More

We purchased ice cleats for our boots (about 5-7 pair) and skipped the guided tour - ran into a couple of tours and am sure glad we were on our own

Our guide Dieter made this trip. A very spritely & fit 72 year old, he was a humerous & very knowledgable guide. The canyon ice is amazing & a must do in Jasper. It was extremely cold (-23 degrees) & the canyon ice was in pristine condition the day we went. Rug up well if you go. Highly recommended.

There are alot of tours to do this, but if you are going in the winter and everything is frozen. You can go a lot farther than the tours and actually take your time to walk the whole canyon and take pictures and admire the view from within the canyon.

We really enjoyed our night time tour with our guide Dave. This was my second trip through the canyon (third for my wife) and night-time adds a special dimension to the whole experience. The night time sky was full of stars and the whole trip had a hint of the surreal. Dave was knowledgeable and took great care to make... More

This was my second visit to Maligne Canyon. The first visit was with my grandmother who wasn't able to do much hiking. This second visit I was able to do the entire day hike. It had rained recently, which made the hike a bit sketchy, so I recommend wearing good hiking shoes/boots. There are elevation changes and unpaved paths, so... More

Take the hike up to the tea house. Great way to spend a day. Bring extra layers the temperature changes quickly up there.

We were staying in Jasper and the Canyon was a short drive. The car park was not full when we arrived but was on leaving. It was not too busy, we visited in September 2016. The paths were easy to navigate with the right footwear. The canyon is pretty spectacular I would recommend stopping and doing the hike.

The nicest way to do this walk is to start at the lowest point (the second starting point coming from Jasper town) and walk up the hill. This way the views are nicer. The walk is 2,2km one way. After you have reached the second bridge (it says "second bridge" on the bridge), walk right from the bridge (unmarked path)... More
