Canada’s Athabasca Glacier Adventure is full of fun! It is worth the 2.5 hour drive from Banff to the Columbia Icefields visitor’s 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 two 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 safe 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. It is a great option for people who cannot do too much physical activity.
