Adventure Cities – Trip Report: Banff & Lake Louise, Canada

By March 7, 2022No Comments

Snowy mountains, dogsledding, and flannel – oh my!

Jonathan and the Adventure Cities team had an incredible time in the iconic cities of Banff & Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada.

It was truly a ‘jam-packed’ film shoot with bucket-list after bucket-list of adventures to experience. With the support of Banff & Lake Louise Tourism, Jonathan, with film crew in tow, braved the cold (-37 Celsius) weather and went fat biking, snowshoeing, skiing, ice climbing and caving. The team also took in some iconic indoor experiences, like cheese fondue at The Grizzly House, visiting Rocky Mountain Flannel, and recharging at the world famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

While difficult to choose a favorite experience, one highlight for sure was skating on frozen Lake Louise with Canadian figure skater Carlotta Edwards.

Banff & Lake Louise is an outstanding destination and the definition of what make memorable, and must-visit, Adventure Cities.
