Day 4: Icefields Parkway – Crowfoot Glacier – Bow Lake – Jasper National Park – Columbia Icefield
Icefields Parkway is a picturesque highway that travels to Jasper National Park through Banff National Park. The Crowfoot Glacier on the Crowfoot Mountain, visible from the parkway, has disappeared and has now lost a whole lobe. Consequently, it no longer resembles the glacier named by early explorers.
There is Bow Lake, a glacial lake with roots in a frozen glacier, along with the Icefields Parkway. Jasper National Park’s Columbia Icefield has an iced region of 325 sq. Km and depth up to 365 m.
Athabasca Glacier is one of the glaciers fed by the Icefield. We can step on this glacier after a ride on the giant snow coach over the steep grades up the glacier. Another exciting experience of the glacier is to walk on a glass-floored walkway of 280 m that extends over the Sunwapta Valley. A bird’s eye view provides the most unique perspective of nature at its finest.
