What to expect

Sit back and enjoy the ride along the Icefields Parkway, one of the world’s most stunning scenic drives. Because you don’t have to navigate or watch the road, this tour allows you to focus on the amphitheatre of mountains towering above. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife at the edges of the forest. Dig into a hearty mountain picnic and take a photo stop at Bow Lake, one of the largest glacier-fed lakes in Banff National Park, against the backdrop of the Crowfoot Glacier. You will then continue to the lower Waterfowl Lake along the Icefields Parkway, a stunning glacier lake set against Mt Chephren. Climb aboard the Ice Explorer (a six-wheeled behemoth of a vehicle) and drive across the surface of this glittering sheet of ice. You’ll also have a chance to drink pure, cold water straight from the glacier. Walk the glass floor Glacier Skywalk, hanging from the edge of the Sunwapta Valley at 918-foot (280 m), for unparalleled views of the canyon below and mountains around you.
