1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec




  • Learn and practice the basic techniques of ice climbing.
  • Ice climb to the top of a frozen waterfall.
  • Enjoy the gorgeous scenery of Jasper National PArk.


Join me for this fun and informative 1-day ice climbing trip at the Melt Out!

This 3-pitch, grade 3 waterfall is located in Jasper National Park, just a 15 minute drive north of the Columbia Icefield, and makes for the perfect challenge for people getting into ice climbing.

After driving as close as we can, we will hike for about 15 minutes through dense coniferous forest and up until we reach the bottom of the waterfall and begin.

Over the course of the day we will learn and practice various ice climbing techniques, while surrounded by the remote and sublime beauty of the national park.

The weather is bound to be cold at this time of year, but the sun will shine right down on us as we climb, warming us up just enough.

We will have stunning views as we gear up and climb to the top of the waterfall. The vista from the top is even better and will leave you yearning for more winter adventures in this beautiful landscape.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this 1-day ice climbing trip for beginners up the Melt Out in scenic Jasper National Park!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my ice climbing and mixed climbing trip to Haffner Creek in Kootenay National Park!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
