Two unforgettable experiences in the heart of the Canadian Rockies

Discover the power of nature on the Columbia Icefield 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 Skywalk at the cliff’s edge.

Columbia Icefield Adventure includes Ice Explorer Tour on the Athabasca Glacier, admission to the Skywalk, and return transportation from the Glacier Discovery Center.

Tours fill quickly. We strongly recommend reserving a time before you visit us.
