Discover a Vast Glacial Landscape

Imagine a journey out onto the rugged icefields of an ancient glacier; the chance to experience the magnificence of such a powerful force of nature. If that sounds exciting to you, then you won’t want to miss the Icefields Parkway—a scenic drive that winds its way between Jasper and Lake Louise passing through the Columbia Icefield and providing stunning views of the Athabasca Glacier.

The Icefields Parkway and the Athabasca Glacier are one of the Candian Rockies’ most beautiful and fascinating sights. The many attractions, guided tours and interpretive experiences will give you the opportunity to have fun exploring and learning about this incredible natural environment.

Stop a while at the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre, check out the stunning views from the Columbia Icefield Skywalk, take a unique Columbia Icefield Adventure on a massive Ice Explorer and browse the interpretive displays, shops and two all-new restaurants.

Overlooking the mighty Athabasca Glacier rests Altitude Restaurant, a truly unique dining experience featuring locally-sourced Canadian cuisine. And Chalet serves casual and fresh food from a grab-and-go menu.

Plus, with so much to do right at the site of the glacier, you’ll want to plan a stay at Glacier View Lodge. The glacier has been here for thousands of years—stay and explore for a while!
