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

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 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
