Crowfoot Glacier Tours and Activities

star-5
480 Reviews

The Crowfoot Glacier, named for its three glacier toes that once formed a very visual representation of the black bird’s foot, has retreated so much since early explorers discovered and named it that it has actually lost an entire digit. Despite its lost toe, the Crowfoot Glacier viewpoint on the Icefield Parkway is still spectacular, especially for northbound travelers due to its position as the first of many up-close viewpoints along the drive.

Opposite this spot is the Helen Lake trailhead. This popular hike is strenuous, but the reward is in the stunning mountain scenery, as the trail crosses a series of alpine meadows covered in summertime wildflowers as it climbs toward Helen Lake. The best views of the Crowfoot Glacier are found further up the trail, but only hikers willing to tackle the steep Helen Lake Headwall will have unobstructed views of the Wapta Icefield, which lies beyond the Continental Divide.

5-Day Private Canadian Rockies and Prairies Express Tour

5-Day Private Canadian Rockies and Prairies Express Tour

At the heart of the Canadian Rockies lies Banff National Park, which became the country's first national park—and the world’s third—when the government set aside a 10-square-mile parcel of land in 1885. Here are twelve things you probably didn’t know about this spectacular place: The prairies begin east of the Rockies, in the province of Alberta. The landscape quickly flattens, providing an ideal setting for farming. The Canadian Badlands are an area steeped in history. Visiting them is like stepping back into the pioneering days and the coal mining era. They are also a vast and unique area of prairies, grasslands, rustic ranches, ghost towns, hoodoo rock formations, coulees and ravines.
