Banff  - Backcountry Lodge Ride

Banff - Backcountry Lodge Ride
Alberta Canada

Snow-capped peaks, glistening glaciers and sweeping vistas are the allure of Banff National Park.

Step out into the Canadian wilderness and enter the home of some of North America's wildest creatures: grizzly bears, black bears, caribou, elk and wolves.  Conquer on horseback the rugged  back-country trails during the day and return to a rustic, yet cozy, mountain lodge each evening. Here you will learn all about the lifestyle in the West as the cowboys will guide you through Banff National Park, the photographers haven of the Canadian Rockies. These pack trips take fellow adventurers deep into the heart of the rugged  Rocky mountain range to explore some of the most spectacular landscapes.

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! This is a wilderness trip for folks who are looking to have a touch of backcountry luxury. Sundance and Halfway Lodges provide just the right combination. Days are spent riding and exploring on horseback, while evenings are spent in the cozy lodges. Meals are always an event and the cooks ensure you are well fuelled for the day's adventures.
We call that roughing it the civilized way!
