Ice Bus

For the best part of 125 years no discussion of tours in the Rockies has been complete without mention of Brewster Sightseeing.

And though they're now a giant operation that's not to everyone's tastes, they're still the yardstick for any regional tour.

They offer seven different tours: six in summer; one in winter at $130–280 for 5–13hr-long trips.

These include trips across the ice of The Athabasca Glacier.


Various other outfitters specialise in taking visitors on outdoor activity trips, such as Whitewater Rafting, fishing, horseback riding and Heli- & Cat-Skiing, snowmobiling and dog-sledding.

The various Information centres are full of fliers for all these outfits.
