Arrive in a snowy paradise in the Canadian Rockies for a truly impressive Canadian adventure.

Set off along a frozen stream bed, stomping your feet along the way to get suitable traction. Relish nature’s spectacular scenery of frozen waterfalls draped down mountainsides and maybe even spot an ice climber.
