Sleigh Rides in Banff

Enjoy the Beauty of the Wintery Canadian Rockies the Old-Fashioned Way: With a Horse-drawn Sleigh

Just hear those sleigh bells jinglin’, ring ting tinglin’ to
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
The snow is fallin’ and friends are callin’ “you-who”
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

Take a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride in Banff National Park, inside the Canadian Rockies.Around Banff, Canada and Banff National Park, it’s not just the winter holidays that bring the lovely weather for horse-drawn sleigh rides; the season here lasts from mid December – in time for a romantic holiday of course – until early April. That’s weather- and snow-permitting of course, but then usually they are.

During the heart of these winter months the warm and cheerful sound of sleigh bells can be heard echoing through the valleys of both Banff and Lake Louise; it’s a popular pastime with both residents and visitors alike. It’s an excellent way to see the scenic winter wonderland that the Canadian Rockies become in wintertime.

Banff sleigh rides travel along the frozen Bow River and feature views of the surrounding mountains and snow filled forests. Sleigh rides start at Warner Stables on Sundance Road in the Town of Banff daily, every hour on the hour from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Rides are approximately 45 minutes in length, and advanced reservations are necessary.
