The towering, snow-capped peaks and pristine alpine lakes of Canada’s mountainous regions will wow attendees, and groups can experience the “breathtaking” aspect of these landscapes for themselves, as they take on the Via Ferrata.

Italian for “Iron Road”, this assisted climbing experience lets climbers of all experience levels safely ascend mountain faces using a system of iron ladders, cables and suspension bridges. Teams will get out of their comfort zones while working up an appetite on these guided climbs, and can celebrate reaching the summit with a pre-prepared gourmet picnic featuring delicious Canadian food and drinks. The experience is available at several locations including Mount Norquay, in Banff, and Whistler Mountain, in British Columbia. Your team will truly feel like peak performers, as they toast their successes, looking down at the awe-inspiring vistas.

Groups seeking a more relaxed experience of Canada’s unbeatable mountain views can drink in the panoramas from the glass-domed windows of the Rocky Mountaineer. This luxury mountain train explores seven mountain ranges across three unique routes, traveling from Vancouver to Banff or Jasper. Its exclusive GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf cars can be easily transformed into a private reception lounge, or a rolling boardroom, and the entire train is available for buyouts. As the train winds its way through the stunning Canadian landscapes, Rocky Mountaineer’s Executive Chefs craft a menu inspired by the passing regions, highlighting ingredients such as Pacific salmon and prime Alberta beef, serving them alongside prize-winning wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.
