Magical Maligne

Ice covered waterfall at Maligne Canyon

Our Overlander guide explains that the Maligne Valley is riddled with underground caves where water surges from 20 km (12 mi) below the surface. We pass Bridal Falls’ lacy veil of ice, walk on the frozen river floor, enter a ‘secret’ ice cave and marvel at towering canyon walls so close that both sides can be touched at the same time. At stunning 30 m (80 ft) Queen of Maligne and Angel icefalls ice climbers ply their sport. Waterproof boots and ice cleats (supplied on tours) are suggested.—LS
