Here, we take an Ice Explorer ride on to the surface of Athabasca Glacier (weather dependent). An experienced driver-guide will lead us and teach us about glaciers and icefields and their importance on our environment. You’ll even have the opportunity to safely step out onto the glacier and stand on the ancient ice. Turning west, we enter Jasper National Park - 4,200 square miles of alpine forests, natural hot springs, white-water rivers, tranquil valleys and jagged snow-capped mountains - and continue to the centre of Jasper town.
