The Icefield covers an area of nearly 325 square kilometres and reaches a depth of 365 metres.(1200 feet) Your route is spectacular as you travel one of the most scenic highways in the world – the Icefield Parkway. Glacier-fed rivers and streams, majestic peaks, peaceful lakes and broad-reaching valleys combine to create not only a harmonious blend of scenic wonders for guests, but also a protected habitat for Canadian Rockies wildlife.
