Alberta Fly Drive Winter Fun in the Canadian Rockies
Do as the Canadians do, embrace and enjoy the snow; have some winter fun in the Canadian Rockies.
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 splendours 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 excursion
