Full description
Start your tour in Banff where you will meet a member of the riding office who will check you in for your sleigh ride. Now it's time to climb into the sleigh and get cozy with your loved one under the authentic buffalo robe. Hear the tinkling of sleigh bells as the horse begins your journey through Banff's mountain meadows. Along the way, listen to stories from your guide and see some of Banff's most iconic mountain peaks including Rundle Mountain and Cascade Mountain. Soak in the spectacular views of the valley and surrounding mountains while keeping your eyes peeled for local wildlife such as elk and deer.
