We booked through Brewsters who we found to run a very slick operation. It meant we jumped all the queues. The guide, Patrick Hoffman, was very informative and also answered all my questions. I do have concerns though about the impact of all the tours...More

First place in Canada we really felt like tourists. Very crowded even though it was supposedly lower season. Couldn't book in for a glacier tour without a 3-hour plus wait. Not really anywhere you can kill time. Only 3 degrees outside. Decided to go for...More

There's lots of hikes you can do around the ice fields (Parker ridge trail is meant to be good). As it was snowing we did a short hike up to the toe of the glacier. I know people go on guided bus tours here. If...More

Hi You can access ice fields on your own, only by a tour bus or guided walking tour. There is no public access. You can see it from the road for free.
