We signed up for the Ice Cubed Tour online before leaving on our trip. We arrived to the glacier on an unseasonably cold morning in August. I realize it's a glacier, but even the guides said it was unusually cold (2degC)
They had water pants,...More
We did the Afternoon Icewalk on Sept 17th. There had been quite a bit of fresh snow recently, so our walk was on a beautiful, white glacier. The weather ranged from snow blowing for a brief time to mostly cloudy and then partly sunny, all...More
Everyone at the icewalks was nice. Peter is funny and friendly. Our guide, Tamara, is very knowledgable and informative. I learnt a lot about the glacier from this. The 3 hours tour feels short for me. The walk wasn't tiring. I was there at the...More
I originally wanted to book the 3hr Ice Cubed walk, but it was sold out. So we ended up on the 6hr Icewalk Deluxe. And I am so glad we did! The hike took us to the most interesting parts of the glacier, parts that...More
My husband & I booked this in advance & the only date available in our timeframe was the icewalk in the afternoon (3 hrs). I wanted to do the 5 hr one but it worked out just fine. The 3 hour trip takes you to...More
This was a wonderful way to experience the Athabasca Glacier. Our guide Kevin was awesome-he was knowledgeable, funny, and interesting. If you're reasonably fit, I highly recommend this over the crazy bus tour up to the glacier.
The glacier walk was the highlight of our trip. How often or accessible is it to walk on a glacier? This tour was purchased at the Visitor Information Center at Jasper National Park. My friend and I was warmly welcomed at our arrival at the...More
The tour offers to lend hiking boots, spikes, waterproof pants and hats in you come unprepared! This was a stellar 3 hour guided hike where it gets super cold the further you get to the glacier. One amazing experience. See it before its gone!
This is the best way to see the glacier. Our guide Carly was amazing, enthusiastic & knowledgable. We had a group of 10. The walk itself is gentle and can be done by most people. We enjoyed every minute and every step. It’s not the...More
Booked this prior to leaving the UK, we met our guide in the parking lot at the base of the glacier where we were kitted out with thermal gear (we had our own) and cramp on’s, after a gentle climb you arrive at the toe...More

I am sure you could, but I would suggest you to get a tour guide unless you feel confident that you can deal with any kind of problem that might come up during the walk. Walking on ice is dangerous to say the least, you don't know where exactly is safe or there might be a hole somewhere under the snow. I think paying for a tour guide is well worth the experience that I had.

I didn't purchase tickets for the tour. I stopped and hiked in the area with my son. I would've stayed longer but I wasn't dressed appropriately. You'll need to layer, knit cap, and a coat to stay warm. It was misting and approx. 55 degrees with wind gust around noon
