There are more beautiful snowmobile areas near Banff, Canada than anyone will be able to ride in a single visit. Deep-powder alpine, trees and hill riding means lots of challenge, but even beginners will find plenty of beautiful places to ride.
Day 1: Welcome to Calgary. A rental car will be ready upon arrival. Choose to explore Calgary or head to the lodge just over an hour away in Canmore. Canmore acts as headquarters for the Alpine Club of Canada. Quieter, cheaper and more relaxed than Banff, Canmore makes a good launching pad for the national park.
Day 2: Today begins the drive through a winter wonderland of natural beauty. Visit Lake Louise, one of the most visited and photographed lakes in the world and home to the world-renowned Fairmont Chateau.
The drive to your accommodations for the next two evenings is a thirty minute drive with scenery sure to amaze along the way. The lodge was built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1902 and the vistas of surrounding mountainscapes are breathtaking. Once you arrive, settle in and soak in the beauty around you. Sit back, have a cocktail, enjoy some good eats. You’ll need to be rested for your next two days of snowmobiling the Canadian Rockies.
Day 3 & 4: After a hearty breakfast, a shuttle will pick you up and head to the snowmobiling headquarters for a day full of adventure. Your guided snowmobile trips offer breathtaking scenic views and the opportunity to see wildlife. Full day tours are 5 hours sled time and include snacks & hot drinks as well as a mouthwatering mountainside BBQ lunch at and altitude of 7,000 vertical feet.
In the evening return to the lodge for dinner and a chance to see Northern Lights. Relax in the hot tub.
Day 4: After the second full day of snowmobiling, return to the Canmore hotel. In the morning, return the rental car at the Calgary airport for your return trip home.
