Pursuit Collection


Every day, the Columbia Icefield Adventure team provides an experience to be checked off the bucket lists of guests from all over the globe — standing on your own two feet on an ancient glacier.

During a thrilling trip on an all-terrain Ice Explorer vehicle specially designed for glacier travel, we fill our guests in on the power of the glacial ice and let them feel it for themselves as they touch and feel the ice at our stopping point on the glacier.

All About the Glacier


In the heart of the Rockies on the iconic Icefields Parkway, we’re about 2.5 hours (185 km) from Banff to the south and 1.5 hours (105 km) from Jasper to the north.

The Team

240 strong across the Columbia Icefield team.

Our Guests
We host over 350,000 guests between May and October at the Columbia Icefield.
Getting Around
We hike, climb and sometimes even ski right from our doorstep on the Icefields Parkway. Staff accommodation is just a few minutes’ walk from the Discovery Centre, so vehicles aren’t required, but are good for exploring further afield. Regular buses take our team to the mountain community of Jasper (1.5 hour drive) for shopping, exploring and socializing.
Staff Housing

Our team lives and breathes the Icefield, with the views from our staff accommodation looking out on the rugged peaks that surround us. Our teams stays cozy at the “Ice Palace” in shared rooms suited for two roomies per room. Staff accommodation fees are $15/day (payroll deducted) and include three hearty meals per day! Shared washrooms, common areas and laundry are on site.

Stay Connected

While much of the Icefields Parkway is out of phone service, there is now cell phone reception at the Columbia Icefield. We've also got you covered with wifi at staff accommodation and the Discovery Centre.
