This trip with a special vehicle was included in our tour group travel, so, we joint it. Afterwards we didn't found it very special. It's so touristy, loads of people, mainly old folks, rode uphill to the gletsjer, felt like an excursion from a cruiseship....More

Sorry, we didn't use an address or coordinates. You can't actually miss it, it's on the main highway 93 N approximately 2.5 hours north of Banff. Don't forget your sensible shoes!
