Starry Skies and Ancient Glaciers Evening Tour

Discover the stunning tranquility of starry skies and ancient glaciers. This incredibly unique evening experience takes place at the Columbia Icefield; one of most breathtaking and unique locations in the Rockies. 

After arriving at the Columbia Icefield, take in Brewster’s signature Glacier Adventure and first travel in a massive Ice Explorer to the surface of the mighty Athabasca Glacier. Here you will step out onto the ancient landmass with an astronomer from The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada for a special talk and introduction to the world of astronomy. Light appetizers and a welcome glass of sparkling wine is included.

After your Ice Explorer Glacier Tour, warm up with a delicious buffet dinner. PEI mussels, freshly carved oven roasted turkey, and a dessert station featuring cheesecake and peach cobbler are just some of the featured menu items for this year’s event. After dinner, you will embark an exclusive stargazing tour on the Glacier Skywalk with your astronomer host. There’s no better way to stargaze than floating 918 feet in one of the largest dark sky preserves in the world.
