Planning on talking advantage of Banff’s natural beauty by exploring one of the many canyons on an ice walk? Due to their family friendly nature, ice walk tours are the perfect choice for those looking to experience nature up close with the added safety of a man made walkway.
Johnston Canyon is a hot spot for both locals and visitors alike, featuring stunning views and steel catwalks that allow explorers of all fitness levels to safely navigate the falls. Whether you’re viewing them during the day, or upping the ambience during an intimate nighttime walk (ice by headlamp light, anyone?), your guaranteed to find breathtaking scenery, and maybe even a few cameos from the local wildlife if you’re lucky!
Banff Adventures happily offers tours of Johnston Canyon, including the Upper Grotto, which takes you across the frozen creek bed, and through a narrow canyon to view the famous upper falls. This tour also gives you the chance to view Native rock art, and learn about the history and geology of the mountains.
Wanting to explore the canyons on your own? Be sure to keep your footing by adding a pair of crampons to your gear. Banff Adventures has crampons available for rental. Please contact us to find out availability.
