Situated in the northwestern tip of the Banff National Park, the Columbia Icefield is the largest ice field in the Rocky Mountains. Explore this area of vast wilderness on an all-terrain vehicle specially designed for glacier travel, while listening to an experienced driver-guide share about glaciers and their impact on our environment. If you’re up for a thrilling adventure, tread on the Glacier Skywalk, a glass-floor observation platform overlooking a 280-meter (919-foot) drop, and be awed by one of the most spectacular scenery on the planet. If you can’t get enough of it, stay here for the night in one of the modest tents on the Columbia Icefield Campground, or opt for a more luxurious stay in the Glacier View Inn to make sure you’re well-rested prior to your glacier adventures.
