We did the morning 3 hour hike with Kuba who did an excellent job! To actually walk on the glacier, crossing over crevices, drinking glacier water was awesome. The views- spectacular! The company will provide extra hats, gloves, boots too if in need.

We drove from Jasper for the 10am, 3.5 hour Ice Cube walk. They did start on time. Besides the short walk from the parking lot, you are on the glacier the whole time. Not sure how you would work it in with the snow coach.
