Very impressive canyon in Jasper National Park. One of the attractions to visit there. Nice views when following the indicated hike (over the different bridges).

See the beautiful canyon with water rushing, swishing, swirling, bashing along the walls. You do not need to walk far to see and hear the action of water meandering at pace thru the canyon.

Our guide Alicia from Sun Dog tours was incredibly informative, thoughtful and entertaining! The best guide on all of our adventures. The Maligne canyon is a must see in Jasper.
