Columbia Icefield Discovery Day Tour From Calgary

Enjoy a scenic ride from Calgary through Banff National Park with photo stops at iconic sights including the Athabasca Glacier.

Get picked up from your hotel in Calgary and set off on a 1-day mountain adventure into Banff National Park. During the drive marvel at stunning views of the Rockies and crystal-clear lakes. Make photo stops at Bow Lake and Crowfoot Glacier viewpoints and look out for wildlife, commonly seen in Banff National Park.

First, arrive at Columbia Icefield Discovery Center, where you can explore the Athabasca Glacier - one of the ‘6 toes’ of the Columbia Icefield. 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, listen to your guide's 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, after a hot buffet lunch, step out onto the glass-floored platform of 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 and glaciers around you and the Sunwapta River with its waterfalls and crystal clear glacier water below.

On your way back to Calgary enjoy some free time in Banff to explore this charming town with breathtaking views.
