Johnston Canyon Icewalk ® Evening

Johnston Canyon IceWalk at night! All the spectacular winter scenes, where snow and ice have formed brilliant icicles and frozen waterfalls. We'll light up the canyon and lower falls with powerful uplights to showcase and capture nighttime images. Included is a Banff souvenir (valued at $15.00)

Use headlamps to light your way through the narrow canyon as your small group (max 12) follow our guide to the lower falls.  The catwalks built into the canyon walls make this an easy trip for everyone.  Along the way your guide will tell stories, point out unique features by powerful flashlights and pause for moments of darkness so you can appreciate the canyon at night.  At our turn around point we'll light up the lower falls and tunnel for viewing and photo opportunities, and have a light supper snack.  You will take away a new impression of Johnston Canyon and a souvenir headlamp for future adventures.
