“Must See Attraction”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

This is must see attraction whenever you are in the Banff/Jasper area. It can be accomplished in a day trip from calgary as well. Experience the one of kind ride to the glacier and drink fresh water from the flowing streams.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The trip on to the glacier on the Ice Explorer was fantastic. Our Driver/Guide was very informative and a very funny lady (Great Songs). The Ice Explorer Centre had a restaurant, shop and Restrooms so provided all the necessary facilities.

“Wrap up!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

First it was very cold there so wrap up. Price a bit steep, but so is everything else in this area. Not too busy the day we were there, but you do not get much time on the glacier. Guide very knowledgable, great to listen to. It actually snowed whilst we were there, and you must do it as it is a lovely sight.

“Not To Be Missed”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

You simply have to go on the Glacier Adventure! Ice Explorer takes you out onto the glacier where you have half an our to walk on the glacier and get some amazing photos. We'll worth it.

“Do it once”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

It is very neat to see the history of the glaciers and valley. The price is a bit steep but so is everything in the parks. It is very cold on the glacier so dress warm, always breezy, usually very busy, go early to avoid the bus tour groups. Saw some bighorn sheep. Take a water bottle to fill with clear glacier water.
