Columbia Ice Field

Jasper, AB, Canada
29 Kudos
We honestly stopped at the Columbia Icefields Visitor’s Center for our kids to use the bathroom, but we ended up being so grateful that we stopped. This center was amazing, with tons of information on the icefields. They even had explorer booklets for our kids that were like the junior ranger books they get in the national parks in the states. There was a gallery with amazing pictures and a movie that we could enjoy as well. We ended up getting some tips on the best family friendly hike in the area as well. It wasn’t the short stop to use the bathroom that we thought it would be!
