Glacier Tours

THINGS TO DO:

Glacier Tours

Touch the ice formed by snow that fell 400 years ago. Can you feel the ancient glacier moving beneath your feet at 3 cm (1.2 in) a day? Stroll along a cliff-edge walkway and step out onto a glass observation platform 280 m (919 ft) high.

Discover the Athabasca Glacier, part of the largest icefield in North America. The Columbia Icefield was formed around 10,000 years ago when most of western Canada’s mountains were cloaked in ice. It spans a vast 325 sq km (125 sq mi) and reaches a staggering depth of 360 m (1,180 ft).

A massive Ice Explorer bus with giant rubber wheels takes you right up onto the glacier. Or take a walk on the wild side and immerse yourself in the power and beauty of the immense glacier on a three-hour guided ice walk. Combine the tour with an interpretive experience at the stunning new Glacier Skywalk.
