Ice walks are the ideal family-friendly activity for those looking to get a hands-on feel for the wilderness, while still having peace of mind navigating a manmade walkway.

Talk a Walk On the Wild Side
Johnston Canyon is a wonder to behold all year round, with thousands of pounds of rushing waters forming numerous falls throughout the canyon during the summer months, along with plenty of wildlife visitors. During the winter months, the water freezes, creating breathtaking ice formations that glitter in the sunlight. Sturdy steel catwalks have been installed and make it easy for visitors of all ages and fitness levels to safely navigate the falls, especially during the colder months where the canyon can be quite slippery. Bundle up and prepare for a memorable adventure. You never know what you’ll find!
Ice Walk Tours with Banff Adventures
Banff Adventures offers three ice walk tours of Johnston Canyon ranging in duration from 2.5-4 hrs, including a nighttime option for those who wish to take in the falls after sundown. From the ever-popular Not To Be Missed to the Grotto Canyon Icewalk that allows you to take a look at native rock art and natural formations within the canyon, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy.
Note: For 2021, Highway 1A is closed, making the canyon accessible exclusively by tour bus.
