Stop at the Glacier Discovery Centre off the Icefields Parkway and board a massive Ice Explorer with giant rubber wheels that takes you right up onto the Athabasca Glacier. Five minutes away, opening in May 2014, is the graceful, glass-floored observation platform known as the Glacier Skywalk. Perched 900 feet above the Sunwapta Valley, the attraction is fully accessible and provides a breathtaking perspective on the park’s glaciology. The town of Jasper is 90 minutes to the north.
