Do as the Canadians do, embrace and enjoy the snow; have some winter fun in the Canadian Rockies.
On your winter holiday in Canada, take a horse-drawn sleigh, drive a team of dogs, don a pair of snowshoes or relax in a hot tub surrounded by beautiful mountains and lots of dry fluffy snow. Drive from the cowboy city of Calgary to enjoy the splendour of winter in the National Parks.
Spend a few days exploring Kananaskis, Banff and Lake Louise, maybe taking in a hockey game and hopefully seeing the Aurora Borealis*.
*Ask us about an extension to Northern Alberta for a Northern Lights viewing holiday.
This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend your winter holiday in Canada or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.
