This drive across the Icefields of Columbia was the highlight of our 3 fantastic weeks in Canada this summer. Marie was our guide and she couldn't have been better, full of energy, enthusiasm, knowledge and charm, she rounded off a perfect trip. The icefields themselves are of course amazing and I really enjoyed going up the Athabasca glacier. Highly reccommended for sure!

What to Remember
unbeatable landscapes and very good, friendly guide. i had expected to see more animals (especially, i really wanted to get to see a bear), so that was a bit disappointing. otherwise great tho!
This was really a series of breathtaking stops topped off with the singularly amazing experience of the Athabasca -- for a nature lover like me, it was basically heaven. Thanks to Benn for making our time even more amazing than it would inevitably have been!
