This a must-have on any bucket list and it’s right in your backyard. The Columbia Icefield is an unforgettable experience that will leave you with a sense of wonderment as you learn about the history buried within the ice.

The Athabasca Glacier boasts ancient sheets of ice that, along with a group of interpreters, tell the historic stories of what once was.

The glacier is located in Jasper National Park and offers a look into the heart of the planet. Check out the glass-bottomed Skywalk which gives you an unprecedented birdseye view of the Sunwapta Valley, born in the Columbia Icefields. From there, you can spot beautiful waterfalls, wildlife, and so much more.
