Maligne Valley Adventure + Guided Walk

A trip to Jasper National Park is incomplete without a journey up the Maligne Valley! Long considered one of the Canadian Rockies crown jewels, this valley is a World Class Treasure! Come with us on a interpreted adventure up this pristine valley and marvel at some of Natures finest craftsmanship!

The journey begins as you climb out of the Athabasca Valley and up into the sub valley of the Maligne. Along the way, you will experience the power of water as it carves its way deep into the earth at Maligne Canyon, wonder at the mysterious disappearance of the water at Medicine Lake and finally take in the sheer beauty of Maligne Lake itself.

Once at Maligne Lake we will walk around the Mary Schäffer Loop. On the hike you will at first meander along the shoreline of the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies but soon enough you will be absorbed into the primordial forest, a place where we don't often get to in our daily lives. Here, things are as they have always been. Prepare to feel brand new again!

Joe Urie

Owner / Head Guide

For over a hundred years guides have been leading people on excursions into these mountains in search of experiences only found on the periphery of their daily lives. In keeping with the standards set by such Jasper legends as Mary Schäffer, Curly Phillips and Bill Ruddy, Joe Urie, (voted the best guide in the Rockies), and his excellent staff will take you into the mountains on a trip that'll serve as the bricks and mortar with which you'll build your own memories. The mountains provide the setting, we provide the guide, but without you, there is no adventure!
