Arrived just a few days (late September) before the Ice Field closed for the winter. Much less crowded on weekdays than weekends. Incredible experience, attentive employees, informative. The whole trip is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, though only 20 minutes or so are actually spent on the glacier. There's a fairly lengthy line to board a bus that takes you to the base of the glacier. You then board a giant bus with 5 foot tires that actually drives you onto the glacier. The drive on this bus is fascinating. Once at the glacier, you get off the bus and can walk on the glacier. Great photo opportunities. Be sure to check the weather. We were going to go on a Saturday on our way to Jasper, but the weather was poor, with limited visibility and high wind (as well as big crowds). We returned on a Tuesday with great weather and less crowds.
