Travel with your interpretive guide along the world-famous Icefields Parkway on this one-way journey from Jasper to Banff or Lake Louise.

Glacier Skywalk

This one-way tour takes you along the Icefields Parkway connecting Canada’s oldest and largest national parks, Jasper and Banff National Parks. Travel past glaciers, turquoise lakes, rushing waterfalls and the world-famous Columbia Icefield.

At the Columbia Icefields you will enjoy a hot lunch and board an all-terrain Ice Explorer onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier where you’ll have the chance to walk on the ice and learn about glaciers, icefields and the impact on our environment on your journey. You’ll then stroll along a cliff-edged walkway leading onto the jaw-dropping glass-floored Glacier Skywalk separating you from a 918-foot drop. You can also enjoy the interpretive exhibit at the centre providing lots of information on the Glacier.

The tour picks up from most hotels in Jasper, and drops off at most hotels in Lake Louise and Banff. You will be contacted after booking to obtain your preferred pickup location.
It’s recommended that you bring warm layers with you, even on those warm summer days since some sightseeing stops will be a little cooler than others. Wear some good walking shoes with grip and bring your camera, sunscreen and some light snacks. Sunglasses are recommended for the Ice Explorer to reduce the brightness of the sun’s reflection on the glacier.
Any children 5 and under sharing a seat with a paying adult will be free. If you require a separate seat for your infant 5 and under, the regular child rate will be charged.
