Hike on the Columbia Icefield

Visit the Columbia Icefield and venture onto the Athabasca Glacier for a guided tour in a specially-designed terra bus. Your guide will provide interpretive commentary on glacier features and explain how glaciers form and affect the landscape.

You will have the opportunity to step out of the vehicle and onto the glacier’s surface. You’ll feel small as you stand on ice as thick as the Eiffel Tower is tall, feel the strong winds coming down from the icefield, and gaze upward at towering peaks draped in even more ice.

Bring a bottle to gather some of the fresh glacier water running along the surface!
