Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - UK/Calgary

Today you'll depart on your scheduled flight to Calgary. On arrival we'll transfer you to your hotel in Banff, reached by a spectacular journey through the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains. You'll stay here for the next three nights.​

Day 2 - Banff

You've a thrilling morning ahead as you get to explore UNESCO-listed Banff National Park. Nestled in the heart of the Rockies, this incredible wilderness is home to snowy mountains, glistening glaciers and ice-covered lakes. You'll see vast swathes of pine forest, where wolves, elk and deer roam free, so keep your eyes peeled. Other scenic highlights are the Hoodoos of Bow Valley, imposing spires of rock carved by wind and water, and the sensational views at Surprise Corner. You'll then take a ride on the Banff Gondola. This cable car takes you to the top of Sulphur Mountain for unrivalled views of Banff and six scenic mountain ranges.
After returning to your hotel, you can spend the rest of the day as you wish. Perhaps you'll decide to take advantage of your hotel's facilities or maybe take a stroll around Banff. There's a great selection of bars and restaurants just a short walk away, where a warm welcome and possibly a roaring fire await.​

Day 3 - Banff

There can be no better way to travel through a snowy landscape than on a horse-drawn sleigh, and that's the plan today. You'll be treated to magnificent views as you listen to the jingle of sleigh bells on this unforgettable journey.
Later, you can warm up – and soak up some history – when you visit Banff's natural hot springs. They're located in an historic spa and bathhouse but with lovely modern amenities. As you relax in the soothing hot waters of a mountain spring, you can take in views of snow-covered peaks in every direction.​

Day 4 - Jasper

You can sit back and take in more stunning scenery today as we journey by road to Jasper, a former railroad town. At this time of year its national park is described as a Christmas card come to life, with its snow-dusted evergreens and frozen waterfalls. You'll get to see it for yourself tomorrow. But for now, just relax and enjoy your hotel's facilities, or head into town to one of its many cosy bars or restaurants.​ Later this evening, you could join an optional excursion to Jasper's Dark Sky Planetarium and Telescope experience. You'll learn about astronomy in the dome theatre, and weather permitting, view the night sky from the outdoor viewing plateau whilst enjoying a hot chocolate and s'mores.

Day 5 - Jasper

Jasper National Park has been deemed by the World Heritage Committee to be among the most significant sights on earth. Today's the day that you get to explore for yourself and see what all the fuss is about!
It is home to abundant wildlife, shimmering glaciers, crystal-clear lakes, thundering waterfalls and evergreen forests. And all this is surrounded by rugged snow-capped mountain peaks. We'll take all these wonderful sights in before we embark on a thrilling winter adventure. In the company of a Local Guide we'll head off on an icewalk in the Maligne Canyon. As we head to the bottom of this deep gorge, we'll see frozen waterfalls, ice caves and incredible ice formations. You'll also learn about the spectacular landscape of the Maligne Valley and hear tales about the mysterious 'disappearing' Medicine Lake.

Day 6 - Lake Louise

Today we travel to picture-perfect Lake Louise, said by many to be one of the most beautiful places in Canada. This glacial, jade-green lake is situated high in the mountains surrounded by towering peaks on all sides.
Our hotel for the next two nights, the stunning Fairmont Chateau, is situated in an enviable position right next to its shores. Built more than 100 years ago as a base for outdoor enthusiasts and alpinists, it has played a part in the colourful history of the Rockies. This evening is yours to enjoy everything this luxury resort has to offer.​

Day 7 - Lake Louise

How you spend today is entirely up to you. You might choose to stay exactly where you are and revel in your hotel's excellent facilities and wonderful surroundings. Another way to spend some time is on an amazing optional excursion which takes you on a snowshoeing tour of Lake Louise. This ancient and efficient mode of transport simply involves wearing specially designed snowshoes which distribute your weight over a larger area. This allows you to walk on the snow with ease, without sinking into it.
Tonight is our final evening in Canada and we've a real treat in store. We'll settle down by an outdoor firepit to say our farewells and enjoy a drink together.​

Day 8 - Calgary/UK
