More Info

Approximately 300 kilometers west of Edmonton and only a bit farther from Calgary, Jasper National Park is a haven for ice climbing enthusiasts.

Among the top spots for dedicated ice climbers headed to the park are Maligne Canyon, Tangle Falls and Edge of the World. Each spot makes for a great day of climbing and all three spots can be climbed in a weekend.

Best of all, these three spots are well off the beaten path, meaning you will get to enjoy plenty of these icefalls and immaculate frozen waterfalls all to yourself.

Along with the impeccable natural beauty and the great climbing conditions, many people head to Jasper National Park to see some of Canada’s most iconic wildlife, including elk, caribou, moose, deer, porcupines, lynx, beavers, foxes, otters,, grizzly bears, coyotes, bighorn sheep, black bears, timber wolves, cougars, and wolverines.
