Banff Travel Ice Walks

Trek across frozen sheets of ice in the canyons of the Canadian Rockies. Banff Travel offers ice walks in Johnston Canyon and Grotto Canyon that will allow you to see how these formations were created by ice movement.

The history of the Canadian Rockies will come alive before your eyes as you wander past Native art, contorted rock formations, and geological wonders. Participants can also choose to take a night ice walk in which you will warm up by a campfire after exploring the shoreline of Lake Minnewanka.

Guests should dress warmly for all of the ice walks and bring a hat, gloves/mittens, and warm boots. Ice cleats, ice poles, hot chocolate, and a light snack are provided by the experienced guides.
