Columbia Icefields

Click here to view a youtube video of the Columbia Icefields

The Great Wall of China, the Statue of Liberty, the Pyramids of Egypt; every corner of the world has its must-see attraction… in the Canadian Rockies, it’s the Columbia Icefields.

Considered one of the most scenic highways in the world, the Icefields Parkway offers an ever-changing view of waterfalls, emerald lakes, alpine meadows and snow-capped peaks. For two hundred and thirty kilometers, from Lake Louise to the Jasper town site, the Parkway winds along the shoulder of the Great Divide and passes by the spectacular mountains of the Eastern Main Ranges of the Canadian Rockies. It follows the headwaters of three major rivers and crosses two major passes en route.  This is the route to over one hundred visible Glacier’s, turquoise lakes, rushing waterfalls and numerous hiking trails, picnic spots and campgrounds.  Getting to the Columbia Icefields is a remarkable attraction in itself!

This once-in-a lifetime experience will leave you feeling exhilarated and inspired with an amazing ride on a massive Ice Explorer to trek onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier. Then, take a jaw-dropping walk along the cliff-edge, glass-floored Glacier Skywalk.

The most accessible part of the Columbia Icefield is the Athabasca Glacier, a six kilometers tongue of ice, just kilometers away from the Icefields Parkway. During the summer, guides lead adventurous people from around the world onto this slowly moving river of ice. It’s a world few people ever see, let alone experience first hand.  These groups are a more intimate way to experience the Icefields.  And a great option for those who do not enjoy large group tours.
