Athabasca Glacier IceWalks was founded in 1985 by Peter Lemieux, an ACMG ski guide and a natural history interpreter working with Parks Canada. Peter saw an opportunity to make the beauty of glaciers more accessible to all. After 36 years of exploring the Athabasca Glacier with thousands of guests, Peter is transitioning ownership to longtime IceWalks guide Corin Lohmann and his wife Megan.
IceWalks continues to be a family-run business providing visitors to Jasper National Park the opportunity to learn the story of the glacier and experience the wonders of this natural ice formation.
We love sharing the Athabasca Glacier with visitors to the National Parks. Our goal is to safely guide our guests into the landscape of the Canadian Rockies and provide an unforgettable experience for all who join us. Our guides will share the story of the glacier and immerse guests in a fragile but harsh environment that is changing before our eyes.
We acknowledge that Jasper National Park, and the Athabasca Glacier on which we operate, are located in Treaty 6 and Treaty 8 as well as the traditional lands of the Beaver, Cree, Ojibway, Secwépemc, Stoney, and Métis. We intend to continue to learn more about the traditional use of the lands in Jasper National Park by these Nations and support more opportunities for our guests to learn about this important history.
