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.

"We just finished the Johnston Canyon Ice Walk and can’t say enough about the breathtaking views, the outstanding tour guide — Bobby Hughes — and all we learned about the forest, animals and waterfalls. We had a tremendous time and would highly recommend this tour. If you’re lucky, Bobby will be your guide."
