Sunshine unveils historical snowshoe tour for 2013-2014 season

Take a step back in time to when Canada’s First Nations people traded along the snow-capped ridges of the Bow Valley in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.  

Walk on top of powdery white snow as you experience 360 degree views of breathtaking alpine landscapes. This truly unique Canadian experience in the heart of Banff National Park, a UNESCO Word Heritage site, features an afternoon snowshoe walk with expert guides. Explore the rich heritage that surrounds you by walking along the path Canada’s First Nation’s trading tribes took and listen to stories of the first European settlers.

This exclusive snowshoe retreat is enhanced by local guides who are both passionate and knowledgeable about the area and who bring an infectious energy to your voyage. These guides are hand selected to help you experience what life was truly like so many years ago.

In addition to this one-of-a-kind tour, guests can also indulge in a fondue lunch atop a snowy peak where the breathtaking alpine views will undoubtedly amaze.
