Description

Join me on this fun and exciting daylong ice climbing adventure where we will teach you the safest and best ice climbing techniques, climb amongst some of the most thrilling landscapes imaginable (including frozen waterfalls!) and take in some truly special and unique views of the abundant gorgeous scenery and terrain, all in the delightful Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and approximately 300km from the city of Edmonton, Jasper National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is renowned throughout Canada and the world as a veritable outdoor activity wonderland, with perfect conditions for winter activities.

We meet at our offices in the town of Jasper, where all relevant safety equipment and information will be dispensed, and from here we travel to the climbing site, which varies depending on the weather and experience of the group.

Our three main options for climbing are the brilliant Maligne Canyon, Tangle Falls and Edge of the World. These lovely and exquisite locales are excellent for ice climbing, as the crowds are minimal due to them being in relatively isolated parts of the park, and the ice walls and waterfalls available cater to all levels of ability, from beginner to expert.

The views we will be exposed to are truly breath-taking, as you will see the national park in all its glory, with the snow-capped mountain peaks giving way to tranquil alpine forests and vast and open tracts of valleys, lakes, glaciers, canyons and waterfalls.

We finish the day back at our office in Jasper, hopefully having made you fall in love with Jasper National Park and whetted your appetite for more ice climbing!

Ice climbing in Jasper National Park is a truly unforgettable experience – book now so you don’t miss out!

To explore Jasper National Park in a different way, we also offer 6-day backcountry skiing trips of the area, here!

Alternatively, we offer 2-day climbing tours in the park, here!
