Queen of Maligne by Jasper Hikes & Tours Inc.


Maligne Canyon Ice walks

Come explore the depths of this iconic Jasper canyon

This is a bucket-list trip; a must-see in Jasper!

Maligne Canyon's unique and mysterious karst system creates a one of a kind winter adventure. Walk the bottom of a

river that rages in the summer but transforms into a walkable winter wonderland every year.

Ice walk season is December 1 – April 1.  Generally, we can walk in to the Queen icefall by January 1st, sometimes earlier, sometimes later. We offer canyon rim walks as an early season tour prior to full freeze-up. Every season is unique and conditions vary from year to year; canyon season may be longer or shorter, but is ALWAYS beautiful! *Call to find out latest conditions.*

Tour can be subject to harsh winter conditions. Please call 24 hrs prior to tour departure as tour may be weather dependent.

Why choose us:

We’re a small business with local knowledge, passion and years of professional training.

You are guaranteed to get a guide who has been doing this for years (there’s only two of us!), so your walk will not only be safe, but backed by years of experience of having fun AND respecting this amazing place we are so fortunate to call our home.

We’re in this for the love of nature, not the money, so come enjoy this winter wonderland with us!

**The Maligne Canyon Icewalk season for 2018/2019 came to a spectacular close on Sunday 24 March. A flash flood due to unseasonably warm temperatures created unsafe travel conditions for the remainder of the season. If you would still like to go on a hike, we are happy to take you. Please call 780.931.4453 or email info@jasperhikesandtours.ca for availability. Unfortunately we cannot provide a hike in the bottom of maligne Canyon.**
