    Athabasca is the most accessible glacier on the continent. The melt water of Mount Snow Dome flow into three oceans: the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Artic.
    Take a bottle with you to pick up some of the purest water you can find.

    An attraction you can't miss is to ride a big bus with big tires known as Snowcoach. It is specially designed to take you to the middle of the glacier, on a 5 kilometre round trip journey. Your driver will explain how glaciers are formed and point out interesting geological features. At the mid-point, you can step out and walk in the ice formed from snow falling as long as 400 years ago.
