Since 1985, Athabasca Glacier Icewalks guides have offered safe and informative hikes at the Columbia Icefield. As an outdoor activity, it’s relatively easy to maintain physical distancing and follow the recommended guidelines.
2021 UPDATE: As the world sorts itself out, and new norms are established, here’s what we are planning for the summer of 2021 in order to maintain our safety record during such unprecedented times. (In 2020, we operated safely through the pandemic, with restrictions and with no reports of COVID transmission.)
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 10th, 2021.
– Icewalk Deluxe hikes (09:30 am; 5-6 hours; 8-9 km) will be offered from July 1 until September 19. Please check exact dates 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!
For 36 years 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.
