For 35 years, Athabasca Glacier Icewalks guides have offered safe and informative hikes at the Columbia Icefield. As the world sorts itself out, and new norms are established, here’s what we are planning for the summer of 2020 in order to maintain this safety record during such unprecedented times.
WHAT WE WILL OFFER:
– Icewalks every morning (10:00 am; 3 hours; 5 km) and afternoon (1:45 pm; 3 hours; 5 km), until October 4th.
– Icewalk Deluxe hikes (09:30 am; 5-6 hours; 8-9 km) will be offered from July 1 until September 15. Due to limited demand, these hikes will be offered on an irregular basis, mostly on weekends. Check when booking.
An Adventure of a Lifetime
YOU NEED TO:
Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have other questions. We are here to help. And we look forward to sharing the glacier with you this summer!
Since 1985, our certified guides have safely introduced visitors to the mysteries of this striking landscape. They are passionate about this place and eager to share with you how glaciers form, their key features and the impact glaciers have on eco-systems near and far. You’ll get a firsthand view of gaping chasms and the tremendous power of moving ice.
Join us late from May through early October for an Icewalk and experience for yourself why the Athabasca Glacier is a “must see” on any visit to the Canadian Rockies. It’s a one and a half hour drive from Jasper or three hours from Banff, making it a perfect day trip along the spectacular Icefields Parkway. No technical skills are required, just an interest in learning about this area and an ability to walk on uneven ground.
