Five Star Sleigh

Dash through the snow on a one-horse, two-seat sleigh—complete with jingle bells! “A cutter ride is pure romance, an opportunity to get away from it all,” says Jill Moellering of Banff’s Holiday on Horseback. Her ride offers mountain views, passage atop a meadow that’s home to an elk herd, and a visit to hot spring-fed Cave & Basin marsh where birds reside all winter. Participants snuggle under a cozy buffalo hide, and indulge in liqueurs and Bernard Callebaut chocolates. A similar tour by Brewster Lake Louise Sleigh Rides features a great view of the picturesque lake, glacier and icefall—go after dark to see the lights of historic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise under a canopy of stars. — Mark Horejsi
