Canadian Rockies Winter Adventure

From £2750 for 10 days
Trip Overview
Canada is stunning any time of the year, especially in winter, so why not fulfil all your snow-covered fantasies in the Rockies? This action-packed trip is winter at its best, with hearty Canadian food and cosy lodging to satisfy the most seasoned traveller. Hike past rugged mountain ranges, try some cross-country skiing, skate on a lake in Invermere and see frozen waterfalls at Grotto Canyon. You’ll have the chance to travel the world-famous Icefields Parkway and hike the Athabasca Glacier, and soak in a natural hot spring amongst the forests in the Columbia Valley. Learn a thing or two about curling and hockey – two proudly Canadian sports – from the pros in Canmore, and dine on Canadian favourites in Lake Louise. Keep warm because this 10-day Rockies winter adventure is frosty. Seriously frosty.

Trip Highlights

•   This action-packed itinerary is stuffed with incredible winter activities that will get your heart pumping: snowshoe, cross-country ski, skate in the great outdoors and try your hand at fat biking (bikes tailor-made for winter conditions, complete with hand warmers!).

•   Go on two unforgettable ice walks at Grotto and Johnston Canyon, past towering frozen waterfalls, staggering icy rock formations and possibly a few daredevil ice climbers.

•   Learn a thing or two about two proudly Canadian winter sports – hockey and curling. The pros will show you the ropes, then you’ll get the chance to test out your new skills in Canmore.

•   Enjoy a rare opportunity to be ferried over the snow by a pack of gorgeous husky dogs with optional dog sledding in Canmore and Lake Louise, using companies vetted for their humane and ethical treatment of working dogs.

•   Invermere on the Lake is picture-perfect any time of the year, but it’s particularly magical in the winter, when its dusted with snow and its lake (Lake Windermere) freezes over and becomes the world’s longest ice skating trail. Spend time skating in the great outdoors while soaking in the stunning mountain scenery.

•   See for yourself why the world-famous Icefields Parkway – a stretch of road that winds through soaring mountain peaks, ancient glaciers, pristine lakes, cascading waterfalls and sweeping valleys – is considered one of the most beautiful drives in the world.

•   Hike the frosty Athabasca Glacier, one of the most accessible glaciers in the world, for a surreal experience that will stay with you long after you’ve gone.

Itinerary & Notes
Make your own way to Canmore, a charming mountain nestled in the Canadian Rockies. There are no airports here, so we suggest flying to Calgary as a number of companies offer frequent shuttles between the two cities (departing from either the international airport or major hotels in the downtown area). Your winter adventure officially begins at in Canmore with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. Following the meeting, there’s an optional group dinner at a local restaurant where you’ll have to chance to get to know your fellow travellers. Otherwise, the evening is yours to enjoy as you please.
