Nature & Wildlife

Alberta and Mother Nature share a wild streak. And we aim to keep it that way. Hundreds of species call Alberta home – 587 to be exact. Watch for Alberta’s all-stars: moose, grizzly and black bears, elk, bison, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, lynx, coyotes, wolves and wolverines. Protecting and conserving all wildlife and their habitats is important to Albertans. We have designated approximately 8.2 million hectares as protected areas. This includes five national parks, hundreds of provincial parks and recreation areas, wildlands and migratory bird sanctuaries. Our wild spaces gives us the chance to look deep into nature and see something marvellous.

Columbia Icefield

Jasper, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Columbia Icefield is the largest icefield in the Canadian Rockies, covering some 230 sq km (89 sq mi) to a depth of 365 m (1,200 ft) and some 28 km (17 mi) long. Draped over the continental divide on a high alpine plateau along the Alberta-BC border, it receives an average of 7 m (23 ft) of new snowfall per year. Not all of that snow can melt in the short summers so it accumulates, turning to ice which flows outward through the surrounding passes, creating fingers of ice known as glaciers, the Athabasca Glacier being the most well-known.
