The Columbia Icefield Glacier Experience reveals the most unique attraction in the Canadian Rockies. Massive Brewster Ice Explorers, specially designed for glacial travel, take passengers on a remarkable excursion onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier. Each 80 minute journey is lead by an experienced driver-guide, who shares a wealth of information about glaciers, icefields and their impact on our environment. Mid-point in the tour, passengers can safely step out onto the glacier and stand on this powerful ancient ice.

The tour is amazing. They talk to you on the way to the ice field, and once you get off the bus, you are free to wonder around. They also recommend taking an empty bottle up, because it is easier to drink the fresh glacial water then.
