The views of the Rocky Mountains and lakes were stunning!! Standing on the glacier in the Columbia Icefields was a once in a lifetime experience. We appreciated the passionate and very educational explanations by our guide Hugh about the history and geology in the regions through the tour 😊

It was a wonderful trip. Neil gave all the finer details about each glacier or the mountain we passed. It was very informative commentary. Walking on the glacier or the Skywalk was a interesting and exciting experience.
