Maligne Canyon is the deepest canyon in Jasper National Park, with a depth of more than 50 metres at certain points. Hikers of all abilities can explore this incredible natural landmark by crossing six bridges built across various points of the canyon. For those looking for a gentle hike, head over the First and Second bridges. The Second Bridge is the highest point of the canyon, standing more than 50 metres above the water.
Venturing further will take you to the Third Bridge, which is the best location to see a spectacular waterfall and makes for the perfect photo opportunity. For those looking for an extended hike, continue all the way to the Sixth Bridge for endless exploration and more spectacular sights.
Exploring the Canyon in wintertime is perhaps even more spectacular than in summer. Join a guided Icewalk and walk directly along the canyon’s frozen floor. With frozen falls and icy caverns all around, it’s an experience like no other.
Soak up more adventure before or after with a bite to eat, a warm drink or a full meal at the Maligne Canyon Wilderness Kitchen.
Stop in for a coffee and a quick bite if you’re en route to adventure. Pick up a picnic lunch to take for later. Or unwind and share stories of epic days over appies and drinks.
As the sun begins to set and the pace slows, Maligne Canyon Wilderness Kitchen comes alive for Jasper’s top evening experience.
