Ice Walking Winter Outdoor Activities

Who needs long walks on the beach when there's frozen canyons begging to be trekked? Check out that winter sunshine sparkling on a frozen creek. • Good to know: Guided ice walking tours come with steel ice cleats. That means slipping hazards are minimal. Cool geological and historical facts come standard, too. • Day or night: What's cooler than a daytime guided ice walk through canyons? The same tour under the stars. And you get to keep your headlamp after. • Solo: Bring your own ice cleats to walk the frozen path of Grotto Canyon near Canmore.
