Full description

Following a pick-up from your accommodation in Jasper, climb aboard a 21-seat tour bus for a comfortable drive up the valley. Your first stop will be at Maligne Canyon. Enjoy an easy 30-minute walk and see the deepest portion at 164 feet, including a thundering waterfall. Re-board your bus and drive on through stunning landscapes en route to Medicine Lake. Here the tour will make a 10-minute stop for photos, and your guide will explain why this is known locally as the "disappearing lake." Continue on to Maligne Lake and take a 90-minute scenic cruise to Spirit Island. Throughout the day, look out for Canada’s famous wildlife, such as abundant moose, the odd black bear, and even a grizzly.

Amazing tour. Sab was out tour guide and drive for the bus, great knowledge of the area, great suggestions for what was available to do in the area after the tour and he was very easy to approach with questions. Mel was our captain and Jared was our tour guide on the boat. Both were professional, funny and knowledgeable. Jared went around to each group sitting in their seats to ask if they had any questions about anything, excellent personal touch. Thank you for a great tour

Unbelievable. Perfect for families with young children like us. Bring water and snacks for the bus ride. Very complete, we did the Maligne route, saw several animals very closely. It was fantastic! Our bus guide was super friendly, we learned a lot of very interesting things. The Maligne Canyon was awesome. At Lac Maligne there is everything you need for dinner and a superb terrace with an incredible view. The food is very good. We had 40 minutes to eat before boarding the boat, which was enough for us. Spirit Island is accessible only by boat and the view is incredible. Definitely worth the detour!!

The tour was great. The pick-up worked perfectly, although I spontaneously registered the evening before. Our guide was great and explained a lot about flora and fauna. The Spirit Island Boat Tour is an absolute must when in Jasper. We also met many animals and had enough time to observe them briefly.
