Fantastic walk onto the ice. Our guide was great and pitched it just right. An experience we will never forget. Would recommend anyone in the area to do. Need to be reasonably fit to participate.

Every time I come up to my favorite Canadian Rockies (thus my TripAdvisor name, CanRocksLover) I try to get on an Athabasca Icewalk with Peter Lemieux. My first time was in 1986 and I find the experience different and refreshing each and every time. This time I was treated to snow, rain, wind, and warm sun. Peter's familiarity with the... More

This was quite the experience unlike anything we have done before! We signed up per a friend recommendation & so happy we did. Our Kiwi tour guide was wonderful & always kept our safety in mind. We learned lots about the glacier and the ice fields. The extra visuals our guide used were very helpful as well. The company will... More

This should be a bucket list activity for everyone - a fantastic morning with Bernard. Full of interesting details and always felt 100% safe. not a diff walk. If driving by or near make the stop, its with booking ahead with these guys.

I've been fortunate to have been many places and done a lot of great adventures and can honestly say that walking on the Athabasca Glacier with Ice Walks is right there in the top of the list of cool things to do on this planet! You'll be so stunned by the amazing mountains and hanging ceracs of ice and snow... More

This walk was one of the highlights on our trip to Alberta. We are so glad that we signed up for the longer walk since it takes you right to the end of the glacier where you eat lunch and can enjoy the best view. It's a lot of walking but nothing overly strenuous and I think anyone of average... More

Spectacular hike on a glacier. Amazing how small you feel with the enormity of the mountains around you and the glacier under your feet. This was a 3hr hike from the base of the glacier to about half way to the ice fall. The icewalk team had everything we needed to wear. We came in jeans and sweater/sweatshirt with sneakers.... More

We have traveled to the Columbia Icefields multiple times and always took the Snocoach for an up close and personal tour of the icefields. Looking for something different, we booked a tour with Peter Lemieux's Icewalk on the Athabasca Glacier. Now that is an up close and personal tour of the glacier. Our guide, Emily, was very well versed -... More

This guided walk on the glacier was the highlight of our trip to the Rocky Mountains. The guide (Bernard) was very informative, we spent just over 3 hours on the glacier which was the perfect amount of time to really take in the beauty of it all. Seeing the photos do not do it justice and you really cannot comprehend... More
