Spend a magical moment in the snow with three sleigh ride outfits

Brewster Adventures

Members of the Brewster team and family have been guiding guests throughout the Rocky Mountain region for over 100 years, making this company intimately acquainted with Banff, Lake Louise, and the surrounding area. Enjoy a sleigh ride with a group, book a private ride for up to ten people, or snuggle up for a ride in a two-seat cutter with your special someone. By day, dash through the forest to admire majestic frozen waterfalls, trees decked with snow, and spectacular mountain vistas. By night, ride under twinkling stars with the magnificent Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise glowing in the background. For visitors wanting a taste of a country-style Christmas, Brewster’s hosts three dinners a season at a charming cabin located a short sleigh ride from the hotel. Enjoy a hearty meal followed by live music and dancing before returning by sleigh to the Fairmont.

Meadow Ridge

Located near Spruce Grove, Meadow Ridge wagon and sleigh rides are perfect for those who wish to enjoy a magical moment during their busy holiday schedule. Spend some time with family or friends in the snowy countryside before returning home to enjoy a warm holiday meal. The private one-hour ride includes an hour of bonfire time; wood and picnic tables are supplied, you just bring the food and drink. Monthly community rides complete with mugs of hot chocolate are also available. No matter the format, the hour will be a memorable one. The team at Meadow Ridge has been training horses for 30 years and is passionate about the care of their herd. It is among the company’s core values to provide enjoyable experiences for both the customer and the animal.


Enjoy a sleigh ride at Longriders’ property near Gibbons and end it with time spent around the bonfire. Bring your toboggans, too, and have some fun on the hill. Or, let the wagon and horses come to you and turn your acreage into a winter wonderland accompanied by the sound of jingle bells before sitting down to a delicious holiday meal inside your own home. Sit back and enjoy all the familiar sights but from a new angle. One experience with Longriders and you just might return year after year like many customers have been doing since the company began providing horse-drawn services to groups in 1990.
