Stop at the Columbia Icefields in Jasper National Park for today's biggest thrill, a ride on a specially-constructed glacier vehicle over the surface of the mighty icefields. You will see crevasses and seracs, and you will learn that glaciers are moving rivers of ice, thousands of years old.

We’ll stop for lunch on own before we board your coach and skirt the southern border of the park on your way to Great Falls for overnight.
