Ice Explorer Tour & Skywalk
Experience the power of glaciers in the Canadian Rockies. Travel on an Ice Explorer onto an ancient glacier and hang mid-air on the Glacier Skywalk.
Ice Explorer Glacier Tour: The Columbia Icefield is located on the boundary of Banff and Jasper National Parks and is one of the largest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle. The continuous accumulation of snow feeds eight major glaciers, all visible from the Icefields Parkway. Facing the Columbia Icefield Visitors Centre lies the Athabasca Glacier - a tongue of ice 6 km long and 1 km wide descending almost to road level. Enjoy a tour onto the icy slopes of the Athabasca Glacier in a specially designed Brewster Snocoach to the middle of the glacier, on a 5 km round trip. Your driver/guide will explain how glaciers are formed and point out interesting geological features as you travel in safety and comfort. At the icefall below the glacier headwall, you will have the option of stepping out onto ice formed from snow falling as long as 400 years ago.
Glacier Skywalk: Opened in May 2014, this attraction consists of a 500m interpretive boardwalk and a glass floored observation platform extending 30m out over the Sunwapta Valley. The Glacier Skywalk offers spectacular scenery and a rare view of nature.
