Kananaskis Country Explorer


Kananaskis Country Explorer
Alberta Canada

A shorter 7-day wilderness getaway into the breathtaking mountain wilderness of the Kananaskis range - in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It will typically cover 100-120 km of both foothill and mountain topography in Kananaskis Country.
This is a  rugged, minimum impact wilderness adventure, in small groups where everyone can get personal attention and develop their abilities and confidence. We will typically cover 100-120 km of both foothill and mountain topography in Kananaskis Country.
We may start from either the Ranch or Little Elbow Trailhead, and normally move camp twice during the week. Five days gives you lots of time to develop an affection and appreciation for both your horse and the Canadian wilderness, though almost everyone agrees that the time flies quickly and they are left with the urge to return and explore other untracked valleys and ridgelines.
This trip normally runs Sunday through Saturday. On Arrival day we meet at the ranch to map out the route for the next 5 days, match you with a horse according to your riding abilities and answer your questions. You will spend the first and last night in the guesthouse at the ranch.
This is not are not a big "corporate" ranch or pack outfitter. Indeed "big" is incompatible with our desire to leave as small as possible a footprint on the wilderness. We don't offer opulent luxury with simulated but tightly scripted "adventure". We don't stage mock gun-fights or hold-ups for the amusement of "tourists". This is a genuine, real-life adventure, breathtaking scenery, camaraderie of the trail, excellent camp-fire cooked food and the opportunity to learn as much as you can about horses, riding and living with nature.
