Columbia Icefield Glacier Tour

Your tour begins with a ride in an all-terrain Ice Explorer, a vehicle designed for glacier travel, onto the Athabasca Glacier. While on this exciting journey, the driver/guide will share fascinating information about glaciers and their importance to the world. Next you'll get to step onto the glacier and experience this wonder of the world up close. At the end of your experience, you'll walk onto the Glacier Skywalk - a cliff-edged walkway where giant glaciers are above you and the stunning Sunwapta Valley spreads out below you. The Glacier Skywalk experience features waterfalls, wildlife and fossils on a thrilling almost one-mile walkway that leads to a suspended glass platform. Here only glass will separate you from a 918-foot drop, a perfect opportunity to capture gorgeous photos. The walk is presented in an interpretive storytelling format that will connect you to a natural world few people get to experience.
