As you explore legendary Banff National Park, you’ll come to Johnston Canyon. A tour of this beautiful part of Alberta is well worth your time if you love the outdoors.
Sightseeing in Johnston Canyon begins with winding down Bow Valley Parkway. Once you arrive in the canyon itself, you’re in for a treat. During the summer, Johnston Canyon is a green, forested place full of wildlife, but winter is when it truly shines. When there’s a chill in the air and ice clings to pine needles, Johnston Canyon transforms into a snow-blanketed wonderland. The towering walls of the canyon lend a quiet, stoic sort of tranquility to the trails and pathways within, creating a world of remarkable stillness.
Once you arrive, embark on the Johnston Canyon Ice Walk, which carries you past streams and striking frozen waterfalls. Snow and ice cling to spruce and aspen trees, glittering in the sunlight. If you’re lucky, you might spot elk, moose, and even wolves.
Johnston Canyon tourism is appropriate for visitors of all ages and walks of life. You can follow an easy, paved path to the Lower Falls, or set out on a longer hike to visit the Upper Falls. Experienced hikers can take in the quiet beauty of the inkpots, a set of six small, spring-fed pools. Be warned—you may wish to bring snowshoes and cleats, as the pathway can get slippery.
