Travel from Victoria to Calgary and enjoy one night aboard the ‘Snow Train’ from Vancouver to Jasper, take a sleigh ride along the lakeside trail to the end of majestic Lake Louise and celebrate Christmas with a traditional Christmas Day brunch and dinner at either the Fairmont Banff Springs or the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
Aleisha Fittler, GM Journey Design, commented: “Christmas and New Year is a really popular time for people to travel with many people choosing to get away so they don’t have to worry about anything at this really busy time of year. It is particularly popular for families and we often have multiple generations sailing with us at Christmas. We love that our guests choose to spend it with us and go out of our way to make their festive experience extra special.”
