I went on the Ice Walks Deluxe tour in August 2015 and had such an awesome time. The glacier is stunning and the ability to spend so much time on it was well worth the money. I loved getting to see so many different features and learn about the history (and future) of the glacier. This trip is a great... More

We managed to book for the "Ice Cubed" walk on the Glacier one day in advance. The team is well organized, providing you with the equipment needed (in case you do not have your own). The walk let you experience and live the glacier, crossing real ice hills, valleys, rivers and falls, admiring the incredible always changing forms created by... More

My family has visited Athabasca Glacier a number of times and enjoyed the walk near the toe of the glacier, but with guests from England coming we decided we needed to be tourists and take them right onto the ice. icewalks.com is the only company that offers guided hikes onto the glacier (you cannot go on the ice without a...

We did the icewalk in the afternoon with our fantastic guide, Phil. All eight of us, aged from 13 to 54, deemed the walk the unexpected highlight of our two weeks in Canada. I had mild concerns about how strenuous the walk would be, but in fact the hardest section was the walk to get up onto the glacier itself,... More

This review is about IceWalks, a company that offers walks up the glacier, on foot, from the toe of the glacier right up onto the heart of the glacier. Make sure you go with www.icewalks.com Just to be clear, we did not do the Brewster’s bus tour. We could have taken a comfortable (costly and cossetted) bus trip onto the... More

The Ice Walk was one of the highlights of our trip to Banff and Jasper National Parks. We had terrible weather the morning of our scheduled walk. It was cold, foggy and raining. Really wondered if we were throwing our money away. However, our guide, Corin, didn't guarantee anything but said things can change, and we would still be able... More

The Ice Walk was one of the highlights of our trip to the Canadian Rockies--if not THE highlight!! We debated doing the bus tour of the Athabasca Glacier, but stumbled upon the Ice Walk recommendation in our Lonely Planet guide book. And I am so glad we did! We spent approximately two hours on the glacier--walking, exploring, and learning about... More

I would recommend this experience for anyone who enjoys learning about something new, while immersed in active excursion. We did the Deluxe tour with Phil.... and he was absolutely amazing- super knowledgable about the glacier and a real "mountain man". He shared about the glacier's history, stories of personal mountaineering and facts about the area. They provide gear for anyone... More
