If you’re looking to walk on the world’s most visited glacier and drink pure, glacial water, look no further. This is it!
Check-in was quick and efficient and everything is organized for you from start to finish. You take a shuttle from the hub to board the all-terrain Ice Explorer, ride to the glacier, spend 25 minutes free time roaming the glacier, and then ride back on the Ice Explorer to then board another shuttle to the SkyWalk. Once done at the SkyWalk, you take your last shuttle back to the hub. From start to finish, plan on 2.5-3 hours visit. And definitely bring an empty water bottle with you to fill up on DELICIOUS glacial water!
The SkyWalk was great in that it not only had wonderful views of the glacial peaks in Sunwapta Valley, but there were various placards along the way, so it felt like an outdoor museum. This was beautifully designed.
We ate at the cafeteria and it wasn’t bad. Get the butter chicken and rice as well as the chicken tenders with fries — much better than the chicken burger (just meh) and chicken noodle soup, which was canned soup btw. Very bland.
Staff overall throughout the hub were kind and efficient.
