Banff Sleigh Rides

Horse-drawn Sleigh Rides are a Great – and Romantic – Way to Enjoy the Wintery Canadian Rockies

Just hear those sleigh bells jinglin’, ring ting tinglin’ to
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
The snow is fallin’ and friends are callin’ “you-who”
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

Take a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride in Banff National Park, inside the Canadian Rockies.Around Banff, Alberta and Banff National Park, it’s not just the holidays that bring the perfect weather for horse-drawn sleigh rides; the season here lasts from mid December – in time for a romantic holiday of course – until early April. That’s weather- and snow-permitting of course, but then usually they are.

During the heart of these winter months the warm and cheerful sound of sleigh bells can be heard echoing through the valleys of both Banff and Lake Louise; it’s a popular pastime with both residents and visitors alike. It’s an excellent way to see the scenic winter wonderland that the Canadian Rockies become in wintertime.

Banff sleigh rides travel along the frozen Bow River and feature views of the surrounding mountains and snow filled forests. Sleigh rides start at Warner Stables on Sundance Road in the Town of Banff daily, every hour on the hour from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Rides are approximately 45 minutes in length, and advanced reservations are necessary.

Want to impress your sweetheart? You can’t beat a cozy horse-drawn sleigh through the snow, and Banff Travel will help set the mood when you book a romantic sleigh ride for two, including Bernard Callebaut chocolates, liqueurs, and an authentic buffalo robe blanket for warmth.

In Lake Louise, the Brewster Lake Louise Stables sleigh ride travels along the lakeside trail to the end of the lake, with views of the Chateau Lake Louise and spectacular mountain scenery along the way.
