Description

Trekking on a glacier as enormous and sensational as the Athabasca Glacier is a tremendous experience. I am happy to guide you along the glacier, through the Columbia Ice Field, near Jasper in Alberta, Canada.

Rated by National Geographic as one of the most scenic drives in the world, traveling through the Columbia Ice Field will take your breath away. We will meet at 10:30 am at the glacier, put on our gear, and start trekking on the gigantic Athabasca Glacier. You will trek through snow and ice, while I carefully navigate us through various crevasses. Thus providing you with an experience that will be as safe and secure as it will be fun and exciting.

What really makes this trip wonderful is that it is open to everybody. No prior experience is necessary. Even children as young as 12 years old can enjoy this excursion. Hence making this a great way to spend a day in an amazing place with the whole family.

Have you ever wanted to explore a glacier? Then send a request and join me on this glacier trekking trip on the Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Ice Field. I have no doubt you’ll have a great time.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
