Bus Fare will be $25 plus $7 if you don’t have a Park Pass.

BB Lake Louise Visitor Centre.

Drop-offs at Nigel Pass Parking, Parker Ridge, and Wilcox Pass Parking. After the drop-off at Wilcox Creek the bus will proceed to the Visitor Centre. Nigel Pass will require a minimum of 4 people. 

Pickup times will be set after we get to the Icefield but here is the planned schedule. The bus will return to the Parker Ridge Parking area about 2.5 hours after the drop-off at Parker Ridge. The bus will leave Parker Ridge and then proceed to the Wilcox Creek parking area to pickup those people who return to the parking area about 4 hours after drop-off. The bus will then go to the Ice Fields Visitor Centre to wait until it is time to go to Tangle Creek. There will be time for people to go into the Visitor Centre. This order of pickups has been set to limit the amount of time people might wait at Parker Ridge 0r Wilcox Creek for pickup.

After the Tangle Creek pickup the bus will pick people up at Nigel Creek if needed.

The hiking time for the Wilcox/ Tangle Falls traverse trip will be 5 hours. This time allows moderate hikers to complete the traverse.

Because of the travel times to and from the Icefields we will be returning to Calgary after 8PM.
