Discover the power of nature on the Glacier Adventure – the must-do experience in the Canadian Rockies. At the heart of the incredible Icefields Parkway is one of the largest non-polar ice fields in the world. Here, you’ll travel on a massive Ice Explorer to a place where you can walk on, feel and drink from the Athabasca Glacier. Then, take a jaw-dropping walk along the glass-floored Glacier Skywalk at the cliff’s edge.

This was one of the most exciting experience we had on on our trip to Jasper/ Banff. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The price though was on the higher side.

Biggest risk in taking ICEFIELDS Glacier tour is no refund when bad weather forces buses to go back.

This was a fabulous experience to be able to walk on a glacier. We had a great time gathering glacier water and I drank it all the way home. Was exciting and inspiring.
