Depending on the package, the accommodation ranges from rustic, comfortable ranch accommodation to canvas tents on raised platforms with foam mats to sleep on, to solid mountain cabins. The camps are mostly situated off the beaten track close to a creek with fresh sparkling water.
There are no showers and flushing toilets at most camps, only outhouses.
Good hearty camp meals are served at the ranch or at camp with authentic cowboy coffee brewed at the campfire in a perfect wilderness setting. Enjoy storytelling time, if you can keep your eyes open after an eventful day on the trail. Raise your head, look up into the starry sky and you will feel a deep appreciation to be alive.
Cell phone reception is not available during rides and at wilderness camps.
Why do I promote these trips?
I have done it multiple times, riding and camping in the Canadian mountains. Once you’re out there, away from modern life and civilization, in the deep wilderness of the land, it somehow feels unreal, like a dream.
It is an experience like no other.
Canada is one of the top favourite travel destinations in the world. It’s a country with huge possibilities and a great place for trying something new. Like going on a horseback ride into the wilderness.
But, how do the majority of visitors to Canada spend their vacation? Most tourists seem to follow their bucket list trip, rent a camper and drive through the world-famous Rocky Mountains. They spend most of their time on the road, heading from one campground to the next.
I suggest, you do something different and add a unique wilderness horseback adventure to your Canada trip. You will be thanking me forever!
If you are getting adventurous for the first time, book a 3-day package. It’s totally worth it and you will be talking about the horseback ride you did in the Canadian wilderness for years to come. I personally know the terrain you will be riding and the area, you will love it.
