ITINERARY:

DAY 1 - Columbia Icefield Arrival

Make your own way to the Columbia Icefield Discovery Centre & Glacier View Inn today. Upon arrival, check into the hotel and then take a ride out on the Athabasca Glacier on a specially constructed Ice Explorer (included). The Athabasca Glacier is part of the Columbia Icefield, the greatest mass of ice outside the Arctic Circle. The ice is 365 metres (1,200 feet) thick – about the height of the Empire State Building. Available in 2014 - Only a few minutes from the Athabasca Glacier is the Glacier Skywalk, Jasper National Parks’ newest attraction (admission included). Winner of the 2011 World Architecture Future Projects award, the Glacier Skywalk consists of a 400 metre interpretive boardwalk and a glass-floored observation platform extending 30 metres out over the Sunwapta Valley. The walkway contains interpretive stations highlighting the ecology, geology, glaciology, Aboriginal history and social history of the area.

DAY 2 - Columbia Icefield Departure

Breakfast is included this morning. Have your morning coffee as the sun rises over the glacier. You may wish to take a small walk down to the toe of the glacier to get a unique perspective of the area before your departure.
