“A very cool experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

We took the columbia icefields tour and the scenery was gorgeous! I would only recommend the bus tour for first time visitors though since they really just take you inside the icefields and let you roam around a small flagged off area.

“Incredible area for the adventurers and tourists alike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

The Columbia Icefield area is hands down one of the most spectacular places on Earth. Whether you are a hardcore mountaineer or a sandal-clad tourists, you will find something here to enjoy. The Icefields Centre is heavy on pay-for-attractions and light on info for hikers/climbers, but a great place to stop for some lunch and a washroom break if needed, or to grab tickets for the bus ride onto the glacier if thats your thing. Given the proximity to the icefield and corresponding glaciers, expect it to be cool and windy even in the summer.

“Ever been underwhelmed by a glacier??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Great staff, very expensive Tonka type "toys" to get 40 people up an impossibly steep sloop to walk on a glacier. But not much to do one you get there

“Good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were with a tour group so not too much waiting. The Sno-coach was an experience and our guide amusing. The scenery is pretty impressive but you don't really get to explore the icefield, just step on the edge of the glacier.
