Loved the experience! The vehicles and discovery centre were convenient and clean and the staff were super friendly. The glacier was so fun and I'll definitely go again next time I'm in Jasper.

I was hesitant at first to book this trip and gladly I was convinced to do it. I tell you what, it's totally worth the money and it's a one time life experience

Definitely be there early! I ordered my ticket online but you still have to line up and receive a physical copy of the ticket.

Overall pretty good! Happy about the firm mask requirements.

Our guide Rob was amazing! Thanks for all the knowledge!
