Day 1
Day one you will be picked up at 10:00am by our van from Whitehorse hotel (pre-tour hotel night is not included but can be booked for you). Here you have the chance to do some shopping for items that you may need for your trip. Once we arrive at the Ranch, you will have a brief tour as you get a feel of the rich history of our Ranch and Fish Lake. Settle into your room in the main Lodge. Enjoy a light lunch with your guide and discuss the coming adventure. Meet your horse and participate in a horse back intro - where your guide will give a brief safety lesson and then instruct you on the proper care of horses as well as the correct procedure to halter and saddle your horse. Saddle up and head out on your very first short ride. Breathe deeply the fresh mountain air as you stroll through the Fish Lake Valley taking in all the scents and sounds of a summer day. Overnight at our lodge (Breakfast is not included, Lunch and dinner is included).

Don't forget to pack your camera as this area is a photographers paradise! Take in the beauty as you ride through peaceful valleys, on majestic Mountain ridges, through meadows and across creeks.

Wind across the ridge and down the trail to find a perfect spot for lunch on the shores of Bonneville Lakes. Take this opportunity to take photos and relax before mounting your horse to explore the rolling ridges. End your day back at the ranch where you will give one last hug to your new four legged friend, pack your bag and head back to Whitehorse hotel for your last night. (Breakfast and Lunch is included, dinner is not included).
