Banff - Wilderness Tenting Ride
Alberta Canada

A true western heritage experience in the stunning Banff National Park.


Horseback riding can truly bring you closer to nature than ever, amidst the peaceful solitude and incredible beauty of the Rocky Mountain back-country! Here you will learn all about the lifestyle in the West as the cowboys will guide you through Banff National Park, the photographer's haven of the Canadian Rockies. These pack trips take fellow adventurers deep into the heart of the rugged  North American wilderness to explore some of the most spectacular landscapes.  Soak up amazing views of Stoney Creek as you trot through the wilderness, keeping an eye out for deer, elk, and moose.In 6 unforgettable days, you’ll venture past grassy ridges, charming meadows and tranquil rivers – spots where elk and deer are easy to see.

The clanging of the dinner bell each night will bring all to our delicious ranch-style meals in the giant kitchen tent. The coffee is always on and kept hot on the wood stove, ready and waiting! The camps you’ll be staying in go far beyond rustic. Curl up in an A-frame canvas tent set on a raised wooden platform and listen to the sounds of the forest as you drift asleep. In the morning, freshen up at the wash stand (complete with hot water) and then enjoy a meal prepared for you in the giant kitchen tent. The horses, chosen especially to meet your needs and experience, will win you over with their charming personalities and amaze you with their  versatility and trail abilities. You will no doubt form a  "partnership" during your ride and come to respect your new friend immensely!  The trails lead to the tranquil beauty of Rainbow Lake; to the overwhelming views of Elk Lake Summit and Cuthead Viewpoint; the open valleys on the Passes of Elk Lake and 40 Mile Summit, and the eerie atmosphere of Mystic Valley. The historic elk corral or wild goat trap should provide you with plenty of opportunities to see the abundant wildlife -  most commonly the elk, deer, bighorn sheep, goats, eagles  -  and capture them all on film! And if you are lucky, your may also get the occasional bear or timber wolf sighting! The riding is casual, with plenty of breaks and leisurely picnic lunches. Lunch breaks also lend you time for some exploring on foot, fishing and even a well deserved snooze in the tall grass!


Plenty of side trips are also available, depending on conditions. This might include journeying to the headwaters of Stoney Creek to watch bighorn sheep graze in the meadows. You could also head up to Block Mountain to take in spellbinding mountain scenery. Imagine riding through postcard-perfect alpine scenery, where the only folks around you are the guides and your fellow riders.

We are also pleased to offer a number of exciting and educational interpretive trips each summer featuring leading authorities on wildlife, photography, mule-manship, the Banff National Park!
