We recommend that you get to the Warner Stables 15 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.
The circuit is at the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, so you will get great views of Banff’s surrounding mountains including Sulphur Mountain and Mount Norquay. If you are lucky you may even spot some local wildlife including deer or elk.
The sleigh is “open top” so we recommend that everyone dresses warm with multiple layers, mitts, hats, a thick winter jacket and boots. Two blankets are included, which are yours to keep after the ride.
The sleigh is a traditional wood construction style, with wooden bench seats. You do not sit on hay.
This ride is taken in a four seat cutter sleigh pulled by one horse – a true one-horse open sleigh! The horses are a variety of heavy horse breeds, including Percheron horses.
There is a 24 hour cancellation policy, which allows you to change/cancel or refund your booking up to 24 hours outside your booked tour (up to 7 days for group bookings).
Tips are not expected, but are certainly appreciated. If you think your guide did a wonderful job and would like to indicate that with a tip, it will be graciously accepted.
