Overview
More
Walk the retreating path of the mighty Athabasca Glacier with an experienced guide and learn how Mother Nature transforms a landscape that appears desolate and barren into a valley of lush vegetation and wildlife. You will see plants that hold unique adaptations to survive the harsh mountain climate, rocks that tell the ancient story of mountain building, and techniques that will help you survive off the land like the early Explorers and Native Aboriginals.
