Maligne Valley Wildlife & Waterfalls Tour with Cruise


maligne

Includes Scenic Boat Cruise on to Spirit Island at Maligne Lake

This journey takes us through forty fivekilometers of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in the Canadian Rockies. The Maligne Valley is home to a wide range of flora and fauna, and has geological features unique anywhere in the world. Our journey will be searching for the abundant wildlife while explaining the history and natural wonders to be explored. A 30 minute stop at Maligne Canyon allows us time to explore the two bridges, offering fantastic views of the cascading waterfall and continuing erosion of the ancient limestone.

As we continue into the Valley we will rise into the sub-alpine forests and view the expanding ranges of limestone rising out of Medicine Lake. This mysterious disappearing lake will change seasonally as the flow rates of melt waters fill and empty this basin. A stop is made to photograph this natural wonder and your guide will trace its history with you. From Medicine Lake we continue up through forest that is prime habitat for moose and bears. Sightings are common but not guaranteed as we are trying to view these animals in their natural habitat.

At world famous Maligne Lake you will embark on the Boat Tour to Spirit Island. This will showcase the blue green glacial water of Maligne Lake and you will learn the human and geologic history of the area on the comfortable enclosed boat tour.
