A Remarkable Experience in the Canadian Rockies

Discover the power of nature on the Columbia Icefield Adventure—the must-do experience for any resident or visitor 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 Centre.
