    The entire trip up and down the glacier was fantastic. While driving to the Icefield, two hours away, a friendly agent took our reservation by cell phone. Parking and getting the ticket was easy. The wait time was a bit longer than what I would have expected for such an efficient looking operation- about a 15 minute wait. The bus driver who took us to the glacier bus was entertaining and informative. Enjoyed what we learned and still remember the facts! The driver on the way down didn’t know the elevation of the stopping point on the glacier. I think that is a fact worth knowing. But most staff knew what they were talking about.The glacier ride was exciting, especially going down the steep slope to the glacier. The driver talked as if she was a geologist/glaciologist (got my degree in geosciences) and she came across as if she had professional training in the subject.The stopping place on the glacier- now Mid- August- was so impressive. Liked how a large area smoothed to walk around and admire the view, flowing water, mountain tops and glaciers. Will never forget this experience and will recommend it to friends. Safety was always emphasized. Well worth the fee.

    We had an excellent time on our tour of the Columbia Icefields. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, as were the bus drivers that took us to the Icefield Explorer. A “must see” for anyone visiting the Canadian Rockies. Well worth the money!

    The Icefields tour is fabulous and was enjoyed by my two teenaged visitors from Mexico and my 14 year old Canadian grandson.A WORD OF WARNING! Talk to the Parks Canada representative before buying tickets from the Bus Line people. There are no signs to show the prices and discounts, therefore I was chareged full-price for my two under-aged kids and not given my BCAA discount. As I thought the price higher than I anticipated, I spoke with gracious Mo at the Parks Canada desk and she gave me the low-down. I finally, not graciously, managed to get the refund of my overpayment – $63 – not an insignificant sum. Thanks Mo! YOU’VE BEEN BUSTED the BUS LINE BUSINESS!

    My wife & I did a stay at the lodge & tour in Sept 2010. As we drove from Lake Louise north it started to snow. As you can see from my photo it was a spectacular day up on the glacier. It’s been 3 years now & we still talk about the once in a lifetime adventure. Where else can you have the opportunity to stand on 300′ icecube.

    Kids, wife and my mother and father in-law loved it. Standing on the glacier is a surreal experience.
