The Glacier View Lodge

by K Gordon Schultz

Stay in the Icefield Parkway at the Glacier View Lodge

The Glacier View Lodge occupies the third floor in the Icefield Centre along the Icefield Parkway, just north of the Banff National Park/Jasper National Park boundary. Book a walking tour or glacier exploration excursion downstairs and then head up to a room with a view!

The centre is a chalet-style stone building and a model of environmentally sensitive design.

The inn has 32 rooms total. Rooms vary in size and price. Larger rooms are available for families that need some space, while more traditional-sized rooms are perfectly cozy for couples on romantic vacations. Lofts and corner rooms are also available!

Amenities include satellite television, telephones, and spectacular views of the Canadian Rockies or the area glaciers!

Choose between deluxe, mountain or glacier view rooms (the mountain view rooms are a bit cheaper) and look for discounts during the low season (late April to mid-June, mid-September to mid-October).

To get there:
The Icefield Centre is located just north of the Banff /Jasper National Park boundary, on the scenic Icefields Parkway (Highway #93 North).

When you arrive:
Park in the public car lot, which is within walking distance to the centre. From there, Inn staff will transfer your luggage to the inn. (You cannot drive directly to the building).
