Canadian Rockies & Northern Lights

From £2875 for 11 days
Trip Overview
Go in search of the elusive northern lights in the night skies of Alberta. Watch for moose, white-tailed deer and elk as you drive through pristine Canadian wilderness. Admire stunning curtains of ice along a steel catwalk built into the rock walls of Johnston Canyon. Meet and greet your team of canines before ticking dogsledding off your bucket list of wintertime activities. Or just wrap your hands around a mug of hot chocolate and lose yourself in the grandeur of the Rockies. Packed with eye-popping views of snow-capped mountain ranges and frozen wonderlands, this is the ultimate Great White North escape.
