Project Description

Banff & Lake Louise Sleigh Rides

Brewster Adventures brings a Christmas card image to life with a unique Lake Louise sleigh ride that follows the lake-side trail beneath Victoria Glacier. Enjoy views of the Ice Falls at the end of the lake by day, or the glow of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise on evening rides. There is no better way to spend time together than drinking in the beauty of sparkling snow and blue sky, bundled beneath a blanket together on a horse drawn sleigh! Our traditionally styled sleighs feature cozy upholstered seats and blankets to keep you warm and comfortable. The Brewster Family will show you the sights – Western Style!

Both day and evening excursions are equally charming. A horse-drawn sleigh ride is a perfect way to enjoy this winter wonderland during family outings, wedding parties, conventions and holidays.

A romantic two-seater cutter is also available for those magical moments and memories in Lake Louise.


There are many relatively flat pathways and trails that are suitable for winter walking in Banff. The Cascade Ponds is an easily accessible area located on Lake Minnewanka Drive just across the highway from the Banff town site. Other options include the Fenland Loop Trail, the Bow River Trail, the Marsh Loop and Sundance Trail. For more details on these trails see our post Easy Walks Around The Town Of Banff.
