One of the largest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle, the icefield covers an area of nearly 325 sq km.
Travel in a specially designed Brewster Ice Explorer to the middle of the Athabasca Glacier, on a 5 kilometre round trip journey.
Your driver/guide will explain how glaciers are formed and point out interesting geological features as you travel in safety and comfort.
At the mid-point, you will have the option of stepping out onto ice formed from snow falling as long as 400 years ago.
Combine with a sightseeing tour for a full Canadian Rockies experience.
