Rockaboo Mountain Adventures offers ice climbing tours for beginners to advanced, and they’re a great place to learn the ropes. Or, if climbing is a little too thrilling, watch the ice climbers while on a guided walking tour of Maligne Canyon with SunDog Tours or Maligne Canyon Icewalks.

Dog Sledding Adventure

Experience the Canadian Rockies in the most authentic way imaginable—by dogsled. Glide through the undisturbed beauty of the snowy landscapes, led by a team of eager and energetic sled dogs. In Jasper, Cold Fire Creek Dogsledding offers this age-old mode of transport as a thrilling adventure. Whether you opt for a short ride on Pyramid Lake during the Winterstruck festival or choose a longer expedition, the rhythmic patter of paws against snow is a melody that complements the majestic scenery unfolding before your eyes. It’s not just a ride; it’s a journey back in time, a taste of the wild, unspoiled essence of the Rockies.
