Awesome. this place was amazing. Several tours offered. We rode in the snowcat up the Athabasca Glacier. Amazing to see and you only see a small portion of this. Highly recommend you take the time to see this. Again, a favorite of bus tours so...More

Sky walk and ice glacier are the main event here. Tickets are expensive but not worthwhile after you've done both as a package. Sky walk isn't tall enough so you don't feel anything, disappointed. Ice field seems to be A Must but also feeling disappointed....More

This was a lovely trip where the guides made it not only informative but entertaining, they were sarcastic but not rude and the young age of the guides made it more accessible for the teenager audience that was present.

If you have not seen a glacier, this is a must see drive. Very crowded. Amusing to see Chinese tourists not heed warnings to stay off glaciers

Free, park up and walk across to see the glaciers from the path. Snocoach tours are available for a price but as these actually drive on the glaciers we thought them a little damaging and chose not to. Good visitor centre across the main road

How many times in life will you have the opportunity to step on a glacier? Just book the tour and do it. We popped into the visitor center at 3:15pm and booked the ultimate package (Skywalk, glacier tour, boat cruise and Banff gondola) We did...More

hi, the tours are very frequent throughout the day, you just need to be there 10mins before. we travelled onto Jasper after and it was around 90mins away by car but I'd set off early just to make sure. There's a... More
