Ice Walks

Banff Ice Walks are truly a unique experience of Banff in the wintertime. We’re proud to operate all three icewalk tours in and around the National Park. Sub-zero temperatures turn the mighty waterfalls into glittering pillars of ice. Suspended in time, these frozen falls look like they are from another world.

More About Banff National Park Ice Walks

The most popular Banff Walk in winter – Johnston Canyon Icewalk®

You’ll visit the narrow gorge of Johnston Canyon in Banff which has a network of steel catwalks built into the canyon walls so you can walk right along this cathedral of ice. Wander through a natural cave to gaze down at the flowing waters of the Johnston Canyon lower falls. Continue onto the spectacular upper falls — a glittering tower of ice that rises 30 metres above your head.

Hike the Johnston Canyon Trail at night 

Want to add a touch of extra drama to your experience? Head back after dark on our night-time Johnston Canyon evening Icewalk® where your headlamp illuminates the way on the first leg of the trip, and the starlight and moonlight take you back.

Are you visiting us on one of our tours soon? 

Our team has curated 3 things to know before visiting Banff National Park in May!

1. Pack layers! While temperatures can be warmer during the day, it tends to drop at night. Be prepared for temperature changes by packing layers to accommodate both. 

2. May is in the shoulder season. The park is less crowded for a more enjoyable experience. Take in the sights and sounds of nature with a more intimate experience.

3. May means more options. While snow has started to thaw in lower altitudes, many of the ski lodges are still in service through the middle of the month. You could quite literally go on a hiking and ski adventure on the same day.
