One of the foremost attractions of the Canadian Rockies is the mighty Athabasca Glacier, covering 2.3 square miles, and thought to be up to 300m thick in places. Learn the story behind this fascinating work of nature, that moves along at a rate of a few centimetres every day, and the causes and effects of its melting. Take the Glacier Skywalk for unsurpassed views of rushing waterfalls and valleys formed by glaciers. This glass-floored observation booth is 918ft (280m), bringing you up close with a world of untouched beauty.
Part two of this amazing Canada gift experience has you boarding the huge Ice Explorer, a vehicle designed specially for travel on ice. Your knowledgeable driver-guide will lead you on an epic journey across the glacier, packed full of incredible sights. You’ll have the chance to walk on the glacier midway through the tour, so be sure and bring a camera.
