Win a holiday to Alberta, home of the Canadian Rockies
Two lucky winners will travel to the province of Alberta, Canada, to spend a week exploring its majestic mountains, dense woodland and crystal-clear lakes
Have you ever been somewhere and wished you could stay forever? The Canadian Rockies is one of those places. Dazzling peaks, lush mountain meadows, turquoise glacial lakes, virgin forest, towering waterfalls and ancient glaciers – one lucky winner and their guest will be able to take it all in by road, on horseback and by helicopter.
Stretching along Alberta’s western border, the Canadian Rockies contain a network of protected national parks that have collectively been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The alpine scenery in Banff and Jasper National Parks is breathtaking and the local towns are filled with eclectic restaurants and shops. There are a host of outdoor activities on offer, too, from hiking, cycling and horseback riding to canoeing, wildlife viewing and lake cruising.
The lucky pair will fly direct to Calgary, stay three nights in Banff, two nights in Lake Louise and two nights in Jasper, with an SUV at their disposal, giving them plenty of opportunities to explore the mountains.
They will take a trip onto a glacier on a specially designed Ice Explorer vehicle and take in the panoramic views from the Glacier Skywalk – an amazing cliff-edge walkway (pictured, above). Also included in the prize is a horseback barbecue trip and half a day’s cycling. Then, ramping up the adrenaline, there’s the opportunity to go heli-rafting in the heart of the Rockies.
The prize is arranged by Frontier Canada, which specialises in arranging tailor-made holidays to Canada. It prides itself on its friendly, knowledgeable staff, who are ready to organise your trip to Alberta – a holiday you’ll remember for a lifetime.
