If you are interested in discovering more about the world of ice and snow, our guided interpretive Icewalk tours onto the Athabasca Glacier are designed just for you!
The Columbia Icefield is made up of several different glaciers, and the Athabasca Glacier stretches down into close proximity of the Icefield Parkway, which makes it very accessible. Although it’s convenient, it still retains the raw beauty of an ancient ice flow, and sparks thoughts of a simpler time, long before any roads passed nearby. While hiking across the glacier you’ll get a close up view of sheer stone walls rising from the valley that has been carved out by the inexorable advance of millions of tons of snow and ice. You’ll cross small waterways that form on the icefield and etch blue-green paths, and all with constant views of the world renowned The Canadian Rockies.
Stop at the Columbia Icefields Centre and get out for some exercise - do more than take a photo, walk on the glacier!
