You'll be safely led by your knowledgeable, local guide into heart of frozen Maligne canyon where its sheer limestone walls reach more than 30 meters above. The winter freeze has caused the raging flow of water, funneling through this narrow canyon, to be brought to a dramatic halt. Waterfalls that drop from the canyon rim are frozen mid-flow, cascading down into a spectacular spray of icy daggers.
Following a short drive, don warm hiking boots and begin the downhill route into the heart of Maligne Canyon. While your guide provides naturalist commentary, encounter ice caves, rock formations, and frozen waterfalls, and discover the mystery of the disappearing Maligne Valley. Following your hike, you are transferred back to a central point in Jasper.
You will have plenty of time to absorb and photograph the majestic surroundings. During the tour, your local guide will reveal interesting geological facts while shedding light on the secrets held deep beneath the canyon floor.
