Canada’s Athabasca Glacier Adventure is full of fun! It is worth the 2.5 hour drive from Banff to the Columbia Icefields visitor centre. If you remember from my previous post “Exploring The Canadian Rockies,” we had purchased the “EPIC” pass from Brewster which included the Glacier Adventure tour. I’ll get to that in a moment, as we actually did 2 tours at the Athabasca Glacier and yes, it was worth it!

My husband wanted to do something adventurous, he’s been longing to trek on a glacier not sure why. What Brewster’s “Glacier Adventure Tour” offered was a more safer experience and little physical activity as you are transported to a huge Ice explorer vehicle to a spot where you get off and enjoy about 20-25 minutes on the glacier. The whole experience lasts about an hour, and probably a great option for people who can not do too much physical activity.
