Banff Sleigh Rides, a true Banff classic.

There’s nothing quite like gliding over sparkling snow in a horse-drawn sleigh – especially when you’re surrounded by some of the most gorgeous mountains in the world. Step aboard and relax as our cowboy guide cracks the reins and your journey in the Canadian Rockies begins.

You’ll travel into the Bow River Valley where soaring pines stand in the shadow of sky-piercing peaks. And in this wilderness, the only sounds that disturb the silence are the clomping of hooves and the jingle of your horses’ harness.

It all makes for great ambience, whether you’re snuggling up with someone special or packing the whole family in for a ride.

Highlights

  • Take in views of Sulphur Mountain through the spectacular Bow River Valley
  • Choose between a Sleigh Ride, or a special private experience including a Private Sleigh Package For Two, and a Private Family Sleigh Package
  • Children three and under ride for free on group sleigh rides
  • Warm up with a hot beverage by the campfire after the ride with the option to purchase a s’mores kit on a site
  • Our horses are super friendly. Feel free to give them a pat or a good scratch on the cheek!
