At Prestige Holidays, we offer some truly spectacular winter experiences, but there is no holiday quite like our ten-day Rocky Mountain Tour. Taking guests on an unforgettable journey through the snow-clad landscapes of Jasper and Vancouver, VIA Rail’s Snow Train includes visits to stunning mountain towns, frozen canyons and plenty more exciting attractions. Here are the main stops on the journey…
Your first stop will be Banff, a picturesque mountain town in the province of Alberta, Canada. Here we invite our guests to enjoy a wildlife excursion before experiencing a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snowy wilderness. There is plenty to see in the main town, too – visit the array of museums, shops, restaurants and galleries, or if you’re feeling adventurous, head to the gorgeous Banff Upper Hot Springs in the National Park, just a short distance from the town. Bathe in the steaming mineral waters of the springs and enjoy the surrounding scenery – this is Canada’s highest operating hot spring, so the views are utterly stunning.
Other popular attractions in Banff include skiing, boating, hiking and climbing. The diverse landscape provides plenty of opportunity for adventure – I have no doubt that you’ll fall in love with this town just as quickly as I did.
After a three-night stay in Banff you will board our Snow Train again to continue your adventure, this time heading to Lake Louise (otherwise known as the ‘Jewel of the Rockies’). You will stay here overnight, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the wonders of this turquoise lake and its exquisite mountain backdrop. There really is no sight quite like this one.
