Description

Explore the most visited glacier in North America in the heart of the Canadian Rockies—Athabasca Glacier. Take an exhilarating walk out onto the glacier and capture some of its melting water. Go beyond nature's edge and step out onto the Glacier Skywalk.

At Athabasca Glacier, just one of 6 main glaciers of the Columbia Icefield, venture onto the slick surface aboard a specially designed Ice Explorer, a massive vehicle specially designed for glacial travel. At the midpoint of your ride, you can safely step out onto the glacier with the aid of your experienced guide.

Drink in the stunning alpine and glacial vistas while you stand on a 25,000 year-old ice sheet. The glaciers of Columbia Icefield feed water to the Pacific and Arctic oceans. See the glacier visibly melting, the runoffs pure enough to drink. Bring a bottle to catch some of the clear, refreshing water from the melting glacier, especially thirst-quenching in summer months.

Next, enjoy exhilarating views from the Glacier Skywalk. Your adrenaline continues to pump even faster as you step out on the cantilevered walkway, made of clear glass over a 900-foot drop. Feel like you're floating above the ice-capped mountain peaks and vast glacier-formed valleys while walking the observation platform 918 feet (280 m) above the Sunwapta Valley—filled with boulders, streams, waterfalls, and numerous wildlife.
