About the tour

Glaciers! The Columbia Icefields really do not need an introduction. The Athabasca Glacier is the worlds most visitors glacier and now that we have internet by the visitors centre, it will be possible to offer virtual tour to this magical and very remote region. Please note: I will be extremely limited how far I can walk on this tour as I will need to stay close to the visitor centre in order to maintain connection and views will be panoramic. Weather changes quickly in this area, so every visit will be different.

WOW! This tour was so spectacular at the Icefields and Patrick gave another outstanding tour. The glaciers, bright blue sky, colourful plants and mountains along with Patrick's commentary was a 10/10 tour experience. Thank you!
