Seeking Alberta Melting Glaciers in Canadian Rockies - Private Tour

Seeking Alberta Melting Glaciers in Canadian Rockies - Private Tour

Seventy per cent of Western Canada’s glaciers will likely be gone by the end of this century. These glaciers are an important part of our landscape, and we take it for granted . . . the landscape isn’t going to look the same. The Icefield Parkway, between Lake Louise and Jasper, is a beautiful, gorgeous tourist destination where you can get on glaciers there . . . it’s hard to see how that will be anything like the present. The Athabasca Glacier, believed to be the most-visited glacier in North America, which is losing more than five meters of ice every year and is in danger of disappearing within a generation. The glacier is the largest of six ice sheets that form part of the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park. Meanwhile, most of the ice loss is predicted to happen between 2020 and 2040. The desire to offer this tour is to show my guests to see the scale of the glaciers melt and opportunity to learn more about the impacts of climate change.
