Cathedrals of ice, stunning views, and plenty of fun for the whole family to explore. Johnston Canyon is one of the most famous hiking trails in Banff that transforms into a winter wonderland full of waterfalls of ice, twinkling snow, and deep ravines. 

This is of the most popular attractions in Banff National Park and a tour not to be missed!  Upon arriving at Johnston canyon, we provide guests with ice-cleats that make walking on the sometimes icy trail, simple. Hike on a network of steel walkways built into the canyon walls with airy views of the gorge below. You will get to wander through a natural cave to gaze down at the flowing waters of the lower falls. Continue onto the awe-inducing upper falls — a glittering tower of ice that rises 30 metres above your head. These gigantic pillars of ice are the tour highlight and ice climbers can often be seen scaling the frozen columns. This tour departs in the early morning, mid morning and afternoon.
