When to go
The Icefields helicopter base is located a couple of hours north of Banff on the Icefields Parkway, so give yourself plenty of time to make the most of the drive.
Layer up! The helicopter ride and the hiking terrain are in the high alpine where conditions change on a dime.
This is one activity where you definitely want to remember a camera.
