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.

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.

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!
