Like summer and sandals or fall and flannel, the winter months just wouldn’t be the same without Christmas lights and cozy sips. This November, bundle up for the best tasting tour in the Rockies and drink yourself down the Banff and Lake Louse Hot Chocolate Trail.

From Banff Avenue to the Chateau, thirsty travellers are encouraged to taste test 20 different hot chocolates from cafes, restaurants, bars, and convenience stores throughout the area.

Each drink is uniquely themed, holiday-centric, and only available for a limited time, so mark down your favourites and prepare yourselves!
