Feel the magic of a real life fairy-tale setting on this tour to one of Banff National Park's most enchanting natural treasures. The Johnston Canyon Icewalk sends you hiking, poles-and-all, into an icy world of waterfalls, frozen towers and one of the planet's most gorgeous gorges.

If Elsa from Frozen were real, she'd most certainly sing Let It Go in Johnston Canyon - probably from the top of the glittering tower of ice, where brave climbers scale columns that are quite literally frozen.

You'll be led in safety across the different levels, where sparkling crevices, rushing waterfalls and over a thousand years of geology in action have made a majestic cathedral of ice.

Witness the frozen creek bed with its ancient pictographs - some of nature's finest artwork!

As you journey back to Banff, snacking on maple cookies and sipping on hot chocolate, your time at the Johnston Canyon Icewalk will feel like a blissful dream.
