Getting to the Columbia Icefield Adventure

The Columbia Icefield Adventure departs from the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre, located on the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93 N)—1 hour south of Jasper and 2.5 hours north of Banff.

From Banff, travel 55 km west on the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) to Lake Louise. Then travel 125 km north from Lake Louise on the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93 N) to the Columbia Icefield.

From Jasper, travel 108 km south on the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93 N) to the Columbia Icefield.
