IceWalk @ Columbia Icefields

Hey All..

heading out to Banff, LL, Jasper next week.. Trying to book the IceWalk @ Columbia Icefields..

They have a 3hour hike and a 5 hour hike.. My GF and I are 35 y.o active and fit people.. Thoughts about either?

Is the 3hour hike enough? Is the 5hr hike overkill?

Please help me out so I can make a reservation?!?

I do not think that a 5 hour hike is overkill, but 3 at the icefields might be a better choice. Just so you know the wind comming of the ice field is cold and blowing. Be ready.

wanted the 5 hour but there were no slots when i was there. i did the three and thought it was "enough" but more is always better! I really liked the hike A LOT! it will be great 3 or 5.

We went on the 5 hour hike at the end of July and absolutely loved it! Our guide was fabulous and the 5 hours went by very fast. I would definitely like to do the ice walk again in the future.
