2021 Calgary > Vancouver

The most wonderful time of the year

Seeing the winter wonders of this extraordinary region has got to be one of the loveliest experiences. Dark nights to view the constellations, icewalks through canyons outside Jasper and Banff and the extraordinary frozen bubbles of Abraham Lake.
Discover the beauty of Banff before the soul-cleansing serenity of Lake Louise. Jasper offers a myriad of activities to get you out into the great outdoors. At night, unwind and reflect on the days’ adventures by an open fire over a streaming cup of hot chocolate, or something stronger! When you reach cosmopolitan Vancouver, why let the journey end there? You might choose to extend your explorations by venturing deep into the iconic Yukon, where you’ll learn about its Gold Rush past, spot the fascinating wildlife and rug up at night to wait for the Northern Lights.
