Don't miss the chance to take the glacier tour - you won't regret it. We had a bright and clear sunny day - the perfect weather, plus a great tour guide - James. The icefield buses (not sure that you can really call this million dollar transporters buses!!!) are true wonders and the experience of walking on the glacier and drinking the glacier melt are once in a lifetime experiences. Great commentary on the science of glaciers and the park. Seeing big horn sheep was a bonus.

This trip is a lot of fun. It was cold and snowy, but so enjoyable with our great Aussie driver.
These young people do a tremendous job making sure you have fun. This is the third time we have been out on this glacier, but the first time so early in the season. it is a MUST Do, if you are ever in this area. The food at the lodge is rather expensive, but welcoming.
they do have over it accommodations for folks who want to climb the Athabasca Columbia Glaciers.

Amazing - natural - and will disappear wtih global warming. Do recommend to take the Bus to the glacier, simply the best views. if possible, take the walking tour with a guide.

A great visit. The drive up there is simply gorgeous, and the whole site is top notch. I highly recommend to walk on the glacier with a guide. It is very sad to see that the glacier is getting smaller and smaller every year.

Excellent driver and guide on the glacier, Sami (?) We learned alot and enjoyed the experience and have great pictures to help us remember this great day. On the day we went the sun was shining and the temperature was very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this adventure to others.
