Overview

    What to Expect
    This half-day experience departs from Jasper twice daily. On board the comfortable, air conditioned minibus, you will explore a section of Jasper National Park, known for its abundant wildlife and breathtaking scenery. Your naturalist guide will highlight the unique features of the valley while you keep watch for bear, moose, elk, wolves, big horn sheep, eagles and even the odd marmot!

    A stop at Maligne Canyon features a short walk around the upper reaches, offering spectacular views of waterfalls and hidden fossils, viewed from the footbridges spanning the deepest sections of the gorge. This leisurely walk allows plenty of time for photos and nature interpretation.

    Continuing up the Valley, you arrive at the 'disappearing' Medicine Lake, with the amazing geology that has created the Karst Topographical phenomenon, causing the lake to completely drain every year.

    The final destination and the highlight of the tour is the world famous Maligne Lake, which features a 90-minute cruise to Spirit Island, a true icon of the Canadian Rockies! Prior to departing back down the valley, you will have a little free time, to browse the gift shop or purchase lunch or snacks at the View Restaurant, which offers a wide array of homemade soups, stews, chilli, sandwiches, salads and a variety of baked goods and beverages.

    This tour travels through prime wildlife habitat, giving you excellent viewing opportunities. Wildlife encounters are frequent, however, everyday is unique in Jasper National Park. This is a natural environment and wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed.

    Tour includes complimentary pick up and drop off from Jasper Hotels.
