FULL DESCRIPTION OF LISTING
Home of 4 season fun in Banff National Park! During the summer months, saddle up for a Trail Ride, hop on a covered wagon for a Wilderness Cookout, relax on a scenic downtown Carriage Tour and experience the real west on a Pack Trip. During the winter months, get cozy on a Sleigh Ride or experience the tranquil backcountry at Sundance Lodge. Be sure to stop into the Trail Rider Store for your western gifts and souvenirs!
For 50 years it has been our pleasure to uphold the backcountry tradition of riding through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. A Holiday on horseback pack trip takes you and fellow adventurers deep into the heart of Banff National Park. Whether you like to rough it in rustic tent camps or relax in cozy lodges, we have the western holiday experience for you. Our semi-permanent tent camps at Mystic Valley, Flints Park and Stoney Creek offer all the basic necessities and canvas sleeping tents. Sundance and Halfway Lodges add a touch of home to the backcountry with comfortable beds and the most scenic porches in Banff National Park. Looking to take home more then a great experience and great photos? Join one of our interpretative trips with specialists on grizzlies, wolves, photography, and mules.
The cowboys, provided by Warner Guiding and Outfitting, will guide you through remote valleys, forge rivers, to high alpine lakes and mountain passes. While the cooks at each tent camp and lodge prepare up a feast that will surely fill you for the day's adventures. The clanging of the dinner bell calls all to delicious ranch-style meals. Coffee and hot water for tea or hot chocolate is always on. The horses, chosen especially to meet your needs and experience, will win you over with their charming personalities and amaze you with their abilities. A strong partnership is usually formed by ride's end.
In Banff for a shorter visit? Mount up for a Trail Ride from 1 to 7 hours in length from Warner Stables and the Spray River Corrals in the Banff town site. Travelling with family or groups? Check out our Wilderness Cookouts with the option of horseback riding or covered wagon- a great activity for everyone!
The fun doesn’t end with the coming of winter. Hop on a Public Sleigh Ride with family and friends or get cozy with that special someone on a Private Romantic Cutter. Both offer 45 minute tours through the mountain meadow and woodland with 360degree views. For those looking for an active winter retreat, Sundance Lodge is accessible solely by cross-country ski or snowshoe and available for overnight stays.
So leave behind the deadlines and schedules and trade them for fresh mountain air, a good horse and a trail that leads you to one spectacular view after another. Wildlife viewings are always a possibility as the grizzlies, black bears, elk, and deer roam freely throughout Banff National Park.
Lodge trips feature 2 backcountry lodges with solar power, outhouses, showers, hand carved furniture and candle light dinners.
Tent trips feature A-frame canvas tents, large kitchen tents for meals and socializing, rail corrals for the horses, and wash basins.
