THE “WOW” YOU ARE LOOKING FOR - For a birds-eye view of the Canadian Rockies, helicopter tours are available for sightseeing and begin in the mountain areas neighbouring Banff National Park.

Horse-drawn Sleigh Rides – Winter

ENJOY THE MAGIC OF WINTER - Nothing could be more special than sipping on a cup of hot cocoa as you ride through snow-filled trails on a horse-drawn sleigh. Hop onboard, snuggle under a wool blanket and enjoy the scenery as horses clip-clop their way among snow-topped evergreen trees.
