Take an amazing guided interpretive drive up the Maligne Valley followed by a Maligne Lake boat cruise to the famous Spirit Island or a guided hike.

The exploration will include a stop at Maligne Canyon for a gentle guided walk to the first two bridges above the gorge, a short stop at the “disappearing” Medicine Lake, and finally Maligne Lake.

At this picturesque gem of the Canadian Rockies you can either relax aboard the famous Maligne Lake boat cruise to Spirit Island or enjoy a guided hike along the Mary Schaffer Loop (3.2km / 2mile – weather and trail conditions permitting).
