“The most amazing parking lot ever”

Reviewed May 30, 2017

Overall Rating

The main benefit to this place is being very close to the icefields, so you can get on the 9am tour. This tour slot means less waiting, less crowds, and less bother, so it's worth it. The other benefit is that it's an amazingly beautiful setting.

The downside is that it is really just a parking lot with a visitor center next door. There really is nothing to do here. Still, it's priced right. I don't think I'd stay anywhere else and then try to get here in time for the early tour.

Tip: The kids can get a junior parks explorer just for the icefields, so that's enough to keep them busy for a few minutes at least.
