If you have just one day in the Canadian Rockies, this is how you should spend it. It’s a one-way trip connecting two iconic towns and parks.

From the iconic Lake Louise to the otherworldly Columbia Icefield and beyond to Jasper, this tour allows you to see glaciers up close and discover how they’ve shaped our landscape. A once-in-a-lifetime ride on the Athabasca Glacier—on board our famous Ice Explorers—will have you drinking water fresh from the ice. The trip continues to the awe-inspiring Columbia Icefield Skywalk before ending in Jasper. It’s a day that you’ll remember forever.
