Learn a bit more about these bucket-list worthy winter experiences!

Visit the Banff Gondola: Ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain for breathtaking panoramic views of six mountain ranges and the town of Banff nestled far below.
 
Banff Upper Hot Springs & Spa: The natural hot mineral water of Banff Upper Hot Springs and luxurious spa treatments inspired by the energy of magnificent alpine settings revitalize the mind, body, and soul.
 
Dogsledding: Clients can enjoy the ride snuggled in a cozy buffalo rug or learn to drive their own team. Seeing the Canadian Rockies from a dog sled provides the best story to bring home with them.
 
Warm up by the Fire: Regardless of which hotel resort you select for your groups, there will be ample opportunity for your guests to cozy up by a fire, both indoor and outdoor.
 
Fat Biking: With snow covering many of the trails in Banff National Park, it’s easy to assume that cycling season is long gone. However, with the rise in popularity of fat biking, exploring your favorite trails in winter has never been better! Experience the park in a brand-new way, explore a new area, or simply travel through the Banff Townsite by bike.
 
Winter Hiking: There are many opportunities for hiking during the winter months. It’s worth the effort to put on some extra layers and venture outside into the crisp mountain air and sparkling snow. You'll warm up quick as you explore the local trails.
 
The famous lake known as the jewel of the Rockies is magical in winter. This iconic scenic wonderland is a protected mountain destination offering the purest of alpine experiences including:
 
Johnston Canyon Ice Walk: Along the way, your clients can stop at Johnston Canyon between Banff and Lake Louise. The views of the frozen waterfalls on this easy to moderate hike are simply amazing. Luminous ice sheets cling to the walls and spill out over the canyon’s edges.
 
Skating on Lake Louise: Your clients can rent skates and glide over the smooth lake under hanging glaciers and snow peaked Rocky Mountains. But can they catch snowflakes on their tongues while they’re doing it?
