Maligne Canyon Icewalk
"You'll be safely led by your knowledgeable local guide into heart of the frozen 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. Fitted with warm waterproof winter boots and tread enhancing cleats you will be comfortable and secure for the 4km leisurely icewalk. You will have plenty of time to absorb and photograph the majestic surroundings. During the tour
