Glacier Adventure is the Canadian Rockies’ most popular tour. Guests ride 5 km / 3 mi aboard an Ice Explorer all-terrain vehicle atop the Athabasca Glacier. Below the glacier headwall participants can step onto ice 400 years old and 300 m / 1000 ft thick. Tours depart every 15-30 min from the Glacier Discovery Centre and are 80 minutes long. All tours include Glacier Skywalk access and groups must pre-book.
Glacier Skywalk is an award-winning, glass-floored observation platform 280 m / 918 ft above a glacier-studded valley with waterfalls. The cliff-edge walkway includes interpretive nature displays. There are roving interpreters and hand-held audio guides available. Tours depart every 15 min from the Glacier Discovery Centre.
Both activities run from mid April to mid October.
