Day 2 Edmonton - Jasper
Sit back and relax when you travel from Edmonton to Jasper this morning. As you traverse this peaceful winter wonderland, every turn uncovers a new panorama. The quiet prairies will give way to the mighty Canadian Rockies, undeniably one of the world’s most extravagantly beautiful ranges. Arrive in Jasper and settle in for a 2-night stay. Tonight you’ll be treated to a special First Nations-themed dinner. Taste and experience what a meal was like centuries ago. (B,D)

Day 3 Jasper - Choice of Snowshoe Trek or Ice Walk
This morning it’s your choice! Perhaps you will choose to get close to nature on an exhilarating snowshoe trek; or maybe you would prefer to embark on an incredible ice walk through spectacular Maligne Canyon. The remainder of the day is yours to enjoy at leisure. (B)

Day 4 Jasper - Icefields Parkway - Lake Louise
Leave Jasper behind and travel to breathtaking Lake Louise. Follow the famed Icefields Parkway, one of the world's most scenic routes. Connecting Banff and Jasper national parks, this well-named highway passes within viewing distance of many glaciers. A leisurely trip allows you to absorb the magnificent scenery. Your drive ends at the Fairmont Château Lake Louise, an incomparable hotel modeled after a Victorian lodge and your home for two nights. (B,D)

Day 5 Lake Louise
Today you are in for a special treat. Your hotel is host to the international ice carving competition – the Ice Magic Festival. Spend the day watching the world’s top ice carvers in action. Stand in awe of the incredible masterpieces these artists create…they start with a huge block of ice and carve it down to include the smallest of details. It is a captivating site to behold. (B)

Day 6 Lake Louise - Banff
This morning, arrive at the "Castle in the Rockies," the Fairmont Banff Springs. Embark on a tour of this historic property upon arrival. Then, visit a local ammonite specialist to learn about this rare gem found only in southern Alberta. This afternoon, set off on a horse-drawn sleigh* ride! Feel like you have stepped into a holiday card as you traverse the countryside. Next, warm up by the fire as you sip hot cocoa and roast marshmallows. Join your fellow travelers at a farewell dinner where you will toast the end of a wonderful trip. (B,D)
