Departs Daily from Jasper - 8:30 AM

Tour Includes:
* Access to the Rockies' newest attraction, the Glacier Skywalk
* A once-in-a-lifetime ride onto the Athabasca Glacier
* Delicious lunch at the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre
* Friendly, knowledgable driver-guides
* Fantastic photo opportunities

Highlights Include:
  • Athabasca Falls - Although not one of the highest waterfalls in the Rockies, Athabasca Falls is one of the most powerful. Even when the river is at its lowest, copious amounts of water flow over the falls, eroding the limestone below and creating a short gorge and numerous potholes.

  • Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure - Take a once-in-a-lifetime ride out onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier in one of our specially-built all-terrain Ice Explorers. As the most easily accessible glacier flowing from the massive Columbia Icefield, the Athabasca Glacier has become the most visited glacier in North America.

  • Glacier Skywalk - Enjoy a birds-eye view of the Sunwapta Valley from the Rockies' most exciting new attraction. Opening in May 2014, the Glacier Skywalk includes an interpretive cliff-edge walkway that leads to a breathtaking glass-floored observation platform suspended 280 metres (918 ft) above the Sunwapta Valley floor. Flat. Out. Awesome!
Ages:
Child: 6 to 15 years. Complimentary for children under 6.
Adult: 16 years and up

Notes:
* Warm layers are strongly recommended for the Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure. Temperatures on the glacier can be significantly cooler than those experienced during the tour or at the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre.
* Sunglasses are also strongly recommended for the Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure as the sun's reflection off the snow and ice can be quite bright.
* Don't forget your reusable water bottle if you'd like to bring back a taste of glacial meltwater!
* Don't forget to bring your camera!
