Giveaway: 3 Jasper Adventures With Pursuit Collection

Giveaway: 3 Jasper Adventures with Pursuit Collection

Have you always wanted to drive the Icefields Parkway to Jasper in summer? You probably know already that it’s a world-class drive. And if you’ve done any research about things to do along the parkway I bet a visit to the Columbia Icefields is on that list and maybe even the Glacier Skywalk.

I think you’ll love the giveaways I have for two people from the Pursuit Banff Jasper Collection. You’ll have the opportunity to do both those things – in addition to enjoying a cruise to Spirit Island on Maligne Lake.

The Columbia Icefield Adventure + Skywalk

The Columbia Icefield Adventure by Pursuit gets you up close and onto one of the world’s largest non-polar icefields via the Ice Explorer. You’ll be able to walk on the glacier and even drink water from the Athabasca Glacier. Then it will be off to walk the glass-floored Glacier Skywalk – providing you don’t get a case of the willies once you’re there. The views are superlative. (Regular prices are $144 per person for these two activities.)

Maligne Lake Cruise

The best boat cruise in Canada according to 8 million Reader’s Digest subscribers is the one on Maligne Lake that cruises to Spirit Island. The backdrop is stunning – rugged mountain peaks and water that’s a spectacular colour of blue in the right light. And Spirit Island itself  is nothing short of gorgeous.

While I have kayaked to the end of Maligne Lake and watched the boats heading for Spirit Island go by I don’t think many people would feel comfortable paddling the distance to Spirit Island. A boat tour is a fantastic way to experience Maligne Lake. The cruise is normally $79 per person with several add-ons possible (that aren’t part of the giveaway) including a buffet style lunch at the historic Maligne Chalet.

    1. All of these activities are amazing, but in all my years exploring the Rockies, I’ve never done the Maligne boat cruise before; would love to go one day!

  1. Would love a cruise to Spirit Island , thank you so much for the opportunity to win! Good luck everyone!!!🤗🤗

  2. Subscribed! I have never been to Spirit Island, but it certainly looks amazing! I would love a chance to visit there!

  3. Wow! amazing place to explore. Ice-fields looks really awesome. I would love to visit this place soon. Thanks for sharing this post.

  4. I have tried boat cruise to Spirit Island. It was amaaaaazing! This time, I would like a tour in Columbia Field.

  5. I would love to do the Columbia Icefields. It has been a number of years, so I’m sure the glacier has shrunk in that time.

  6. Although I live in the west, I have not had the opportunity to enjoy any of these adventures. Every time I go to Prince George for family commitments, I always promise myself I will stop and enjoy the Jasper area – hasn’t happened yet, but some day.

  7. We have been to Jasper several times and have not done any of those activities. We did try to get tickets for the Maligne Lake cruise once, but they were sold out. That would be my top choice.

  8. This would be a dream come true for me. The ice fields would probably take the cake since I have never experienced anything like it.
