“I thought this was a pre-historic thing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

The museum exhibits were very educational. And the knowledge that this is one of 6 places in the world with this kind of massive ice field is pretty interesting.

“Snow in summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Get a 3 activity ticket if you are going on to Banff. Two rides in coaches well organised and then you are on to the Icefield for a 20 or so minute walk around in the snow. Wonderful experience but as the icefields face north, taking good pictures towards the icefield not as good as you would probably like. Ride up 26 degree road at end is an experience in itself.

“Shocked at the Changes since 1969”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

My last visit was in 1969 and I was shocked at how far the ice fields have receeded since then. Did not go into the visitor centre, or actually go onto them with the tour, but drove to where, if energy could allow, you could walk up closer to them.

“A must do on the Icefields Parkway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Whilst the experience was quite expensive, it was quite good value for money. It needs to be done if you are in the area, as I have not come across an opportunity like this anywhere else - without having to pay for a guide for a 3 hour hike.
