Explore Frozen Canyon
Glacial rivers and waterfalls can be found all across Banff. These canals also freeze over in the winter, creating stunning ice structures that resemble a cross between Frozen and The Chronicles of Narnia. We strongly advise you to arrange a trip even though you can put on some crampons similar to these and venture onto the ice on your own. Going with a knowledgeable guide who can assist you in navigating through potentially hazardous ice trails and winter weather is considerably safer.
Yes, you read that right. In the mountains surrounding Banff, you may board a dogsled and race through the snow. Dog sledding was invented in the Canadian Rockies by the native Inuit people of Canada, and it continued to be a crucial mode of transportation into the early Banff settlements. Dog sledding has a rich heritage rooted in cultural customs and is an amazing way to explore the park!
Your body will only want to unwind after a long day of snowshoeing, ice skating, snowboarding, or simply playing in the snow, especially in a warm, humid environment. Because warming up after playing in the snow is the only thing better, and hot water is the ideal treatment for aching, weary muscles! Luckily, the Upper Hot Springs in Banff provides all you require. Our best memory from Banff is going to the Upper Hot Springs in a snowfall. The enormous thermal pool starts inside, saving you from having to battle the cold to enter the water, and then moves outside. The enormous pool has a shallow part for waders and a deep end for complete immersion. In the winter, the entire pool is naturally heated to a pleasant 100 degrees. In order for your body to benefit the most from your bath in the hot springs, cold water is crucial.
Lake Louise is a sizable, turquoise lake that is encircled by snow-capped mountains in the summer. Get that image out of your head, though, because the lake freezes over completely in the winter, hiding the stunning glacial blue water and driving away the throngs of tourists who would otherwise be gathered along its banks for that one canoe photo (I’m not angry; I’m just resentful that I don’t have one). In the winter, what could be more enchanted than a horse-drawn sleigh? Yes, pretty much nothing. By enjoying a horse-drawn sleigh ride around Lake Louise, you may add some winter pleasure to your experience in Banff. In essence, it’s a fairytale: you’re placed in a lovely, ornately decorated sleigh and provided with warm blankets as you gleefully romp through the icy evergreens near Lake Louise.
