Accommodations for Banff - Wilderness Tenting Ride



Accommodations

This is a pack trip and both nights will be spent at one campsite.

Description
Each camp is set up with heated A-frame heated canvas tents on raised wooden platforms with padded cots (no need to being your own mattresses). Large cozy kitchen tents  provide a place for meals and socializing. Rail corrals keep the horses contained and happy.  Simple luxuries abound such as wash stands and hot water, and even heated tarp tent showers, make for cozy accommodations. Rivers flow nearby for the fishermen or brave swimmers. We have a generator at all camps in case you need to charge phones/ batteries.
- Campsite is surrounded by an electric fence that keeps curious critters out
- Outhouses, which are meticulously cleaned, can be found at every camp
- Crystal clear water is supplied by nearby glacial streams, which is then filtered for drinking
- Kick up your feet next to the community fire pit and swap tales about the day’s ride



Mystic Valley Camp
This place is true to its name. The branches of old growth pine and spruce trees are draped in thick moss, giving the place a mystical – almost eerie – ambience. It’s set along the banks of 40 Mile Creek, which leads back towards Banff.

Room Occupancy
The single supplement fee applies if we are unable to find another rider to share.
Triple occupancy is not possible for this trip.


Meals
All meals from lunch on Day 1 to lunch on the last day are included in the trip.

Camps are fully catered and include live-in cooks, who all love to show off their backcountry culinary skills. They will cook up a feast of hearty, homemade cowboy cuisine for you. Coffee is always on and kept hot on the wood stove. Gather inside the big kitchen tent to dine on succulent steak or chicken.

Limited wine and beer is available for purchase.

Dietary Restrictions
Although we can cater to some specialty diets, we do not cater specifically to vegetarian diets.  There are always plenty of meat-free options available. However we do not offer a “vegetarian” main course. 

This trip includes and can accommodate special dietary requests.
