Columbia Icefield Discovery

The adventure begins on the Icefields Parkway – one of the most scenic drives in the world. Arriving at the Columbia Icefield, you’ll catch a ride onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier in the Ice Explorer, a massive all-terrain vehicle specially designed for glacier travel. 

The grand finale to the experience is a stroll along the Glacier Skywalk, a glass-floored observation platform overlooking glacier-formed valleys and rushing waterfalls, where glass is the only thing that separates you from a 918-foot drop. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
