    What to Expect
    Find your way to the Warner Stables in Banff for your sleigh ride through the Canadian Rockies. 

    Climb up into the traditional horse-drawn sleigh with your party and snuggle up under some wool blankets. See the horses' steamy breath rise in clouds as you set out into the snow-covered landscape. 

    Glide through the pristine meadows for 40 minutes, admiring stunning views of the mountains and the surrounding valley. Look out for local wildlife and snap photos as you travel.

    It’s a great activity for people with younger kids. It’s very cold, even though they give you blankets to use you should still layer up since you are sitting still for about 45 minutes you will start to freeze.

    Guide was talkative, fun to interact with. Course was boring, nothing of interest to see. Wait till spring/summer and take a real horse back ride.
