Glacier Walking Nature & Wildlife

Discover the Athabasca Glacier, part of the largest icefield in North America. The Columbia Icefield was formed around 10,000 years ago when most of western Canada was cloaked in ice. It spans 325 sq km (125 sq mi) and reaches a depth of 360 m (1,180 ft). Hop on an Ice Explorer bus with giant rubber wheels that takes you right up onto the glacier or go up on foot on a three-hour guided ice walk. Combine the tour with a stroll along a cliff-edge walkway at the nearby Glacier Skywalk and step out onto a glass observation platform suspended 280 m (919 ft) above the Sunwapta Valley.
