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. The Icefields Parkway has been recognized as one of the most scenic drives in the world, with over 100 visible glaciers, turquoise lakes, rushing waterfalls and numerous hiking trails, picnic spots and campgrounds.

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.
