Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure: Ice Explorer & Skywalk

1. Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure: Ice Explorer & Skywalk

Begin your unique adventure at the Columbia Icefield Discovery Center. Meet your guide, who will take you to the Athabasca Glacier. At the scheduled time, board your Ice Explorer, a huge vehicle specifically designed for glacial travel, and set off on an exciting ride. During your ride, hear stories and facts about the Columbia Icefield and the glaciers around you. Once on the Glacier, hop off the vehicle to walk on the extremely thick, 25,000-year-old ice and drink cold, pure water from the glacier itself. This is an experience you will never forget. Then, take a short ride to the Columbia Icefield Skywalk. Heighten your senses by walking on a platform where only glass separates you from a 918-foot (279-meter) drop. Marvel at the spectacular views of the mountains, glaciers, and the Sunwapta River with its waterfalls.

Once you are there at the Icefield Center, after tickets all transportation is taken care by them, from Regular bus to huge tire bus to glacier & transfer back to regular bus to sky field & return back to Center.
