Day 1

Day 2

Banff

Set off on your winter wonderland adventure through the Rocky Mountains. Call in at the Yamnuska Wolf Dog Sanctuary to learn more about these marvellous creatures, then join a thrilling helicopter ride over the Rockies, where you’ll be treated to some of the most spectacular lake and mountain views you’ll ever set eyes upon. A stop in delightful Canmore is recommended too. Here, have a go at fat biking on the snow, catch an ice hockey game or take it easy with a wander around town, before spending the night in Banff.

Day 3

Lake Louise

Continue on to the lovely Lake Louise, a ski resort and veritable winter wonderland. Get your skis on and hit the powder or, if skiing’s not for you, perhaps try tubing or ride the Lake Louise Gondola for fabulous mountain views. Alternatively, really take it easy with a soak in the Hot Springs or your hotel’s hot tub. Finish the day with a thrilling snowmobile ride through the beautiful scenery, finished off with hot chocolate and a cookie at the top of a mountain.

Days 4-5

Jasper

Enjoy a morning dog sled ride in Lake Louise along the Continental Divide and feel the exuberance emanating from the dogs, many of which are rescued. Later, follow the spectacular Icefields Parkway to Jasper, no doubt making copious photo stops along the way. Once in Jasper spend two days exploring the lakes, canyons and (frozen) waterfalls or, if you’d prefer to take it easy, spend some time admiring the spectacular night sky or stop for a drink in the cosy Jasper Brew Pub.
