Banff Lake Louise

Alberta, Canada

Clip-clop. Toast the holidays from your seat aboard a horse-drawn sleigh ride when you visit breathtaking Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. Beneath a buffalo robe, with a steaming mug of hot chocolate in hand, you'll wind along snow-frosted, evergreen-fringed trails. But that's not the only option to explore this revered UNESCO World Heritage site. In winter, choose from 3 ski areas, where you can also snowshoe or sled. Skaters can swirl on iced-up Lake Louise, nature's rink, spanning more than 1 mile.
