Day 1: Arrive in Edmonton, AB

Welcome to Edmonton, the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta, located on the North Saskatchewan River. Known as Canada’s festival city, with more than 30 festivals each year, from the popular Edmonton Folk Music Festival to the International Street Performers Festival, they bring the city to life no matter what the season. Winter in Edmonton is the time to explore the city’s cultural scene for immersive experiences at the Royal Alberta Museum or the Art Gallery of Alberta, or embracing some indoor fun (and shopping) at the famous West Edmonton Mall. Edmonton’s culinary scene is known across Canada and beyond.
Overnight: Edmonton
Day 2: Edmonton, AB

Winter is a fabulous time to enjoy the wilderness of Elk Island National Park. Wildlife viewing is at its best and the serenity of the winter landscape offers peace of mind and a quick getaway from city madness. Spotting wildlife in Elk Island can be easier during the winter months and cross-country skiing or snowshoeing is a great way to experience the National Park. The park trails are multi use and shared by both snowshoers and skiers alike. There are also guided Night Sky viewing programs offered by The Elk Island National Park authorities. In the evening, we head out to the Neon Sign Museum, the first of its kind in Canada, featuring a collection of functional historic signs that tell a story about Edmonton’s neon past. The City of Edmonton has collected 20 neon signs, all of which have been restored and installed on the east wall of the TELUS building in the heart of the city opposite Rogers Place. And then head out to one of the magical winter light shows at Glow Edmonton in the Expo Centre, Luminaria at the University of Alberta Botanical Garden or the Winter Wonder Forest, a truly enchanted Edmonton's Drive Thru Holiday Light Experience where over 115,000 sq feet of space is transformed into a stunning and breathtaking light display to view from the warmth of our vehicle.

Day 3: Edmonton to Jasper, AB

We depart Edmonton after breakfast and enjoy some beautiful views as we travel west towards Jasper National Park. The frozen lakes and rivers provide a great backdrop for the elk, deer, moose, wolves, sheep and coyotes that are still very active in winter. There will be some time to spend exploring the charming Jasper town centre before we gather for a 3-hour Downtown Foodie tour that will take us to four local eating places, visiting points of interest and taking in some of Jasper’s tastiest tales along the way. At each restaurant, we will be able to try a top dish and a perfectly paired drink to get a real experience of Jasper’s food scene. Renowned for its breathtaking dark sky, Jasper is the perfect place to embrace the night and whether you want to stare into the Milky Way or watch an awe-inspiring aurora. Jasper’s dark sky is exceptional during the winter; we gather under the dome of the Jasper Planetarium inside at the Jasper Park Lodge. The Planetariums’ experienced astronomy guides will guide us on a tour of the cosmos. Specializing in the night sky above Jasper, visitors have the chance to see the stars above Jasper regardless of the weather. This is a great opportunity to take in a closer look at the heavens over the lakes, canyons, glaciers and mountain tops of the second largest Dark Sky Preserve in the world.
Overnight: Jasper
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Day 4: Jasper, AB

The Maligne Canyon Icewalk Tour in Jasper, Alberta is one of Jasper’s most popular and impressive winter activities. Our guide will take us to the bottom of the Maligne Canyon - the deepest accessible canyon in Jasper National Park, where we will explore frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and incredible ice formations. We will learn about Jasper’s Maligne Valley, Karst topography, and the mystery of the Jasper’s disappearing Medicine Lake.
Overnight: Jasper

This morning we embark on the most beautiful drive in North America made even more stunning in its stark winter beauty. Considered to be one of the most spectacular drives in the world, the Icefields Parkway winter drive allows visitors to experience the awe-inspiring mountains, epic glaciers, frozen waterfalls and ice-covered lakes that define the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Look out for bighorn sheep, mountain goats, coyotes and deer which are commonly sighted along the Parkway in winter. We’ll stop along the way at Athabasca Falls, Sunwapta Falls and Columbia Icefield before heading back to Jasper.
