Two unforgettable experiences in the heart of the Canadian Rockies

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

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