Today's guest ranches have many activities to indulge in besides horseback riding. Most of the activities are nature and wilderness based but you can even indulge in some spa treatments at some guest ranches. Activities will vary from ranch to ranch so be sure to check with the individual guest ranch you are booking with. Here are some examples of what you might be able to do on your next guest ranch vacation.
You can enjoy Mother Nature and go on a hike in the mountains or forest trails. You can also go swimming in pristine lakes or heated indoor pools. Maybe you feel like a game of tennis? There are even guest ranches that offer white water rafting for the truly adventurous at heart. For those of you that like to fish, how about trying your hand at fly-fishing in a glacier lake or river?
