Rockies Winter Escape Holiday

The Canadian Rockies are renowned for the perfect powder snow that draws skiers from far and wide but you don’t have to ride the piste to have a white winter holiday in the mountains. The Banff and Jasper national parks both offer a whole host of winter activities that adults and children alike can enjoy. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice climbing, hiking to frozen waterfalls and dog sledding are all on offer in this winter wonderland. If you are really lucky you may even see the Northern lights as they dance across the sky.

Itinerary

Day 1 Calgary – Lake Louise

Fly across the snow covered plains of Canada and touchdown in the Calgary, the gateway to the Rockies, and enjoy the scenic transfer that winds along the mountain highway to Lake Louise for two nights.

Day 2 Lake Louise

Possibly the most photographed lake in the world, Lake Louise is beautiful in the summer and absolutely stunning in the winter. Frozen solid over the winter month, the lake is strong enough to walk on, you can even hire a pair of skates and go for a quick spin or try a little ice hockey if you wish. Spend the afternoon on a memorable sleigh ride along the shores of the lake, beneath the Victoria glacier and onto frozen waterfalls, truly romantic.

Day 3 Lake Louise – Banff

This morning you leave the gentle pace of Lake Louise behind and head to the winter playground of Banff. Flanked by mountains on all sides, Banff is the highest town in Canada sitting at 4,537 feet and offers a vast array of winter activities to enjoy. For panoramic views of Banff and the Bow valley take the gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain or relax in the relaxing Banff Hot springs, so nice when surrounded by snow.

Day 4 Banff

Today is a day of adventure as you enjoy your included Johnston Canyon Ice walk. This 3.5 to 4-hour guided walking tour leads you through the natural wonder of Johnston Canyon in all its winter glory. On this exciting guided excursion you will trek across steel walkways built into the canyon walls and witness breath taking views of the gorge below. The catwalks lead you into the frozen lower waterfalls and onto your final stop at the upper falls, framed by gigantic ice pillars and frequented by courageous ice climbers. Spend some time enjoying the view with a little hot chocolate and maple cookies.

Day 5 Banff – Jasper

Hit the road and marvel at the stunning scenery as you make your way through the Rockies from Banff to the Jasper, along the Icefields parkway. This journey offers fantastic opportunities for wildlife viewing as the hardy winter creatures search for food but you have to be quick as their winter camouflage makes them hard to spot. Snow covered peaks and frozen lakes make for perfect photograph opportunities.

Day 6 Jasper

Jasper is filled with winter fun for everyone. Strap on ice cleats over your warm winter boots, bundle up with a thick coat and toasty gloves, and visit Maligne canyon. Cross bridges made of ice and touch frozen waterfalls but best of all you can visit at night when the stars are shining and the ice sparkles. For something a little faster climb aboard a dog sled and glide over the snow as you are pulled along by a pack of friendly Alaskan huskies. In the night time the town comes alive with apres ski entertainment.

Day 7 Jasper – Calgary

A full days drive as you journey back through the scenic Rocky Mountains to Calgary and your international flight home.
