Head into Johnston Canyon after dark on our night time tour where your headlamp illuminates the way. It is truly a unique experience.

Want to add a touch of extra drama to your Icewalk experience? Head into the canyon after dark on our night time tour where your headlamp illuminates the way on the first leg of the trip. This is Johnston Canyon as you've never seen it before. Using headlamps and powerful flashlights, our guides illuminate the water-formed Canyon, the spectacular frozen rock walls and our "Cathedral of Ice" at the Lower Falls, offering a truly unique perspective on this stunning environment. The suspended catwalks, built into the limestone walls, make this an easy trip for everyone. Along the way, your guide will highlight unique features and pause for moments of darkness and quiet to foster an appreciation for spending time in the canyon at night. At our turn around point, your guide will illuminate the expanding ice that encases the rushing water and escort you through a natural tunnel onto the viewing platform, beside the cascading Lower Falls themselves. Warm up with hot chocolate and maple cookies.

The return journey is your opportunity to travel without your headlamp (should you wish!). You'll be amazed as to how quickly your eyes adjust to the darkness, enough for you to travel through the pine forest guided only by the ambient light of the moon and the stars above your head. You will take away a new impression of Johnston Canyon and a souvenir headlamp for future adventures.
