Your Athabasca Glacier Icewalk Adventure Awaits

Discover the glaciers of the Columbia Icefield on interpretive Icewalks led by experienced guides

Athabasca Glacier Icewalks


For over 30 years, Athabasca Glacier Icewalk guides have safely introduced visitors from all over the world to the mysteries of this striking landscape. They are knowledgeable and experienced. They are also 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.

Whether you choose the popular Ice Cubed/Icewalk in the Afternoon or the Icewalk Deluxe, you will have plenty of time to explore the beauty and complexity of the Athabasca Glacier. We will open your eyes to the many features that exist in this seemingly barren world of rock and ice.

Join us late 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.

PLEASE NOTE: For the 2018 Icewalk season we are almost completely booked up until after the first week of August. Most days have only one or two spots available per walk. 
For your best chance to join us, keep checking the website. If you try to book and there appears to be nothing, then that day is fully booked, or doesn’t have the numbers available that  you are looking for. We are so sorry not to be able to accommodate all, but our numbers are limited by Park regulations.
