We went there this summer. The cruise was really great with beautiful scenery and explanations from the guide. The company is environment-friendly limiting the number of boats on the lake at one time. I deeply recommend this attraction.

The cruise and visit is short, but well worth it. The guides were entertaining and informative. The scenery is unreal.

Outstanding landscape. Great boat. We did not understand this at first, but quickly fell in love with this special place in the Canadian Rockies near Jasper. Outstanding views of the glacier and ice fields. Beautiful landscape. Mountains and glaciers all around us.

The boat takes you out on the lake, but then what? You will not see anything special or more then you will see from the banks of the lake. And how about the price? 72 dollar per person.More
