Banff - Backcountry Lodge Ride - 3 days
Alberta Canada

Rugged mountain scenery and an abundance of wildlife.

That’s what you’ll find on the 3-day Sundance Explorer ride. And when the sun sets, you’ll be relaxing in pure backcountry comfort. Cowboy style.

This adventure takes you along the glacier-fed waters of the Bow River, one of the best spots in Banff to spot elk, deer or even moose roaming along the shores. Follow the historic Storm pack trail, travelled by renowned explorer Erling Storm in the early 1900s, while taking in awe-evoking views of the Sundance mountain range.

At night, the cozy Sundance Lodge gives you a surprisingly comfortable spot to rest your head. Snuggle by the fire, devour gourmet backcountry cuisine and swap tales about the day’s adventures with your fellow riders.
