Jasper Wildlife and Waterfalls Tour with Maligne Lake Hike
Travel through the incredibly scenic Maligne Valley of Jasper National Park while searching for the abundant wildlife spotted frequently in the area. You’ll go on a short walk to see stunning waterfall vistas at Maligne Canyon and stop for photos at Medicine Lake before embarking on a guided nature walk along the lakeshore at Maligne Lake.Itinerary
This journey takes us through 45 kilometers of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in the Canadian Rockies. The Maligne Valley is home to a wide range of flora and fauna, and it has geological features unique in the world. Our journey takes us searching for abundant wildlife while explaining the history and natural wonders to be explored. A 30-minute stop at Maligne Canyon allows us time to explore the two bridges, offering fantastic views of the cascading waterfall and continuing erosion of the ancient limestone.
As we continue into the Valley, we climb into the sub-alpine forests and view the expanding ranges of limestone rising out or Medicine Lake. A stop is made to photograph this natural wonder, and your guide traces its history with you.
From Medicine Lake, we continue up through a forest that is prime habitat for moose and bears. Sightings are common but not guaranteed as we are trying to view these animals in their natural habitat.
At world-famous Maligne Lake, you are led on a 3 to 4-km interpretive nature walk. You take in beautiful lakeshore vistas before following the easy-grade trail loop back into the forested surrounds. Stop At:
