Itinerary

Day 1
Fly from UK to Calgary
Day 2
Banff

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.

5* Fairmont Banff Springs

Banff helicopter tour Sleigh ride in Banff

Day 3
Lake Louise

Get your skis on and hit the powder in Mt Norquay, Sunshine Mountain and Lake Louise, all included in your ski pass. If skiing’s not for you, perhaps try tubing in Lake Louise or ride the Banff 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 sleigh ride or ice skating in Lake Louise, where you can admire the ice sculptures (in season).

5* Fairmont Lake Louise

Lake Louise snowmobile tour

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 you’ll spend two days ice climbing, ice walking, ice caving, and snowshoeing to your heart’s content. 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.

4.5* The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

Dogsledding in Lake Louise

Day 6
Edmonton

Continue to Edmonton and admire the ice sculptures or try ice skating along the Victoria Park IceWay. Call in at Elk Island Provincial Park for a chance to spot bison, or come at night to stargaze – this is a designated Dark Sky Preserve after all. Before you leave, satisfy your skiing cravings at Canyon Ski Resort or perhaps shop for souvenirs at West Edmonton Mall, the largest shopping centre in North America, or try CrossIron Mills outlet shopping mall on the way back to Calgary.
