Glaciers of the Canadian Rocky Mountains Tour -
The Columbia Icefields and Athatbasca Glacier Experience

Connecting Banff to Jasper, the Icefields Parkway has been described as the most spectacular highway in the world. Surrounded by the towering peaks of the Main Ranges of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the Parkway winds its way through scenic mountain valleys filled with stunning blue glacial lakes, tumbling white waterfalls and cool, clear mountain streams. High above the highway, within the mountain peaks themselves, lie the true jewels of the Icefield Parkway - the glaciers of Banff and Jasper National Parks. These staggering rivers of ice are all that remains of the expansive North American ice sheets that used to cover the entire northern and alpine regions of North America. Come along with GeoHistory Tours and experience the beauty and majesty of the Glaciers of the Canadian Rockies on this spectacular sightseeing adventure.

This full day sightseeing tour / field tour is a must for individuals interested in the geography, topography and natural history of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The tour is centered in the Bow Valley and Icefields Parkway of Banff National Park and includes a trip to the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier for an Icefield Glacier experience - where participants get to walk on the glacier. Participants learn what glaciers are, why they occur, and their role in the global warming debate as well as their importance in the economy of the modern world - all while enjoying the world class scenery of the Icefield Parkway and the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Along the way, participants will view some of the most famous glaciers on the planet, including Victoria Glacier, Bow Glacier, Crowfoot Glacier, and of course, Athabasca Glacier. From mountain peak to glacial lake, this glacier sightseeing experience is a must for those individuals wanting to gain some insight into the natural history of the Canadian Rockies.
