Loved this tour. We hiked on a glacier...who does that? Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. I am 46 and could lose a few pounds. I found the hike to be strenuous, mostly because of the altitude, but doable. Well worth the cost.

Response from JasperIceman | Property representative |
You could stay in Jasper if you are up that way (it's about 1.25 hours drive from there to the icefield), or if you prefer you might consider staying at the Glacier View Inn, just across from the glacier where we meet. Nice... More
