Spend seven amazing days enjoying active winter adventures in the Canadian Rockies! Cross-country ski, snowshoe, and bike in Alberta, Canada with other women who share your passion for the great outdoors! This active winter adventure in the frosty fresh air, audible quiet, and awesome majesty of the Canadian Rockies put you squarely in touch with the revitalizing forces of nature.
Explore the Canadian Rockies in Alberta
Begin your week by trying out a fat-tire bike and cruising groomed snow trails. Women of all fitness levels will love this gorgeous bike ride, with miles of trail options to suit each cyclist’s abilities. The next day, grab your sunglasses for a full day of cross-country skiing in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. Take a one-hour cross-country skiing lesson then set out with professional guides on trails through the quiet, shaded forests. Every skier will find trails that suit her pace, from gentle to challenging.
This is also the habitat of elk, lynx, and wolves so make sure to watch for these beautiful creatures along your route. At day’s end, rejuvenate in a Nordic hydrotherapy spa treatment as you spring into a cold-plunge pool, then wrap yourself in a plush, pre-heated blanket in your own “winterized hammock” for an indescribable calming experience enveloping both body and mind.
Canmore & Lake Louise
Set out on a four-hour snowshoeing expedition surrounded by beautiful views as you trek through the white powder. Then make your way to the beautiful town of Canmore where you’ll spend two nights at a remote hotel. Whether you can land a double-lutz, or never stepped on ice before, the truly grande finale of your trip is 100% Canada: ice skating on glacier-fed Lake Louise, a tour de force of nature. Skate around sparkling ice sculptures such as a crenelated ice castle, Inuit totems, or towering ice wolves chasing a moon.
On your final free afternoon in Banff, splurge on a dip in the Banff Hot Springs before the farewell dinner. Over hot drinks and an exquisite meal, it’s time to toast each other for the amazing things each of you tried and loved, and the Canadian Rockies experiences you’ll never forget.
