This place is one of the stops you should include on a multi day trip to the Rockies. If you're only here for a day, maybe skip it in favour of Banff, Johnston Canyon, Lake Louise, Columbia Icefields and Takakkaw Falls.

This is easy to find on Highway 93...35 minutes and 48km from Banff.The trail starts at the carpark and winds around the canyon.You can do it in half an hour.Lots of photo spots.If your lucky like me you might see Ice-Wall climbers there.

This place is a must if you are in Kootenay. The "hike" isn't very long and you get to cross some very fun/high bridges across the canyon. We loved this area!

We were on the way to Johnston canyon, but the guy at the parks info centre told us it was closed and recommended we go here. Never even heard of this place before! Definitely worth to check out. You can walk around and it doesn't take too long and the hike isn't very strenuous. We went in the fall, would... More

Joann was the most accommodating guide taking us up the canyon, across bridges, and making maple taffy in the snow. She finished our tour with a snowshoe race with a group of sixties racing like ten year olds. Great job,Joann and Banff Tours!

My friend and travelled to Marble Canyon on Sunday because it was such a warm sunny day. It was absolutely breathtaking with all the snow heaped on the banks and rocks. The walk up was fine with a bit of a steep hill at the beginning which was a bit slippery. We both had our ice pics on so that... More

Approximately 30 minutes drive out of Banff Townsite, along the Highway 93, you come across the Marble Canyon hike. It is an easy hike ideal for all ages but is not very handicap friendly since you must ascend stairs at the start of the hike. The hike is a (about) 1.6 Km round trip hike that offers stunningly beautiful scenery... More
