Getting to Maligne Canyon

Maligne Canyon is located just 10 minutes from the Jasper townsite and 5 minutes from Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge on the Maligne Lake Road. This roadway provides breathtaking vistas and great opportunities for spotting wildlife. It’s also the road that leads to famous Maligne Lake and Spirit Island.

From the east end of the town site of Jasper, follow Highway 16 east for 3 km and take the turnoff for Maligne Lake Road to the right. Proceed over the iron bridge across the Athabasca River and stay left at the fork in the road. Follow the road to Maligne Canyon (on your right side).
