This really is a once in a lifetime experience, since there are only about 30 Ice Explorers in the world. The Ice Explorer is a very special vehicle with enormous tires that bring you up to the Athabasca glacier. The ride in itself is special and our driver, Tall Mike, really made it unforgettable. Such a funny guy!
You’ve got about ten minutes to walk around on the glacier and have a taste of the very cold glacier water. Wonderful to see the ice up close and enjoy a walk on a glacier! The fee for this attraction is high, but this experience truely is worth it.
