Summary

Experience the rugged mountains of Canada and go in search of the northern lights in the night skies of Alberta. Watch for moose, white-tailed deer and elk as you drive through pristine Canadian wilderness. Admire curtains of ice along a steel catwalk built into the rock walls of Johnston Canyon. Meet and greet a team of canines before ticking dogsledding off your bucket list – one of the many optional activities on offer. Otherwise, just wrap your hands around a mug of hot chocolate and lose yourself in the beauty of the Rockies. Packed with eye-popping views of snow-capped mountain ranges and frozen wonderlands, this 11-day adventure is the ultimate great white north escape.

Remarks

Highlights

  • Navigate the frozen waterfalls, ice caves and imposing ice formations of Maligne Canyon on a guided exploration of the deepest accessible canyon in Jasper National Park.
  • Peace River is located in Northern Alberta and is a prime location for Aurora viewing. Little light pollution, flat landscape and generally clear winter skies allow for ideal Northern Lights viewing conditions.
  • The world-renowned drive from Jasper to Banff on the Icefields Parkway is astonishing. Even better when you don’t have to do the driving.
  • Join an included sleigh ride around stunning Lake Louise, a bucket-list Canadian experience in Banff National Park.
  • Meet your canine crew in Canmore before setting out on an unforgettable dog sledding experience.
  • Take a backcountry snowshoe hike in the mountains above Banff that includes a unique picnic of cookies and hot chocolate in the snow.
