Who are the horse pack trips and multi-day horseback rides for?
The horse pack trips and multi-day riding adventures appeal to nature-loving individuals who appreciate rugged surroundings in the natural environment of the Canadian West.
The trips are completely outfitted and guided. Beginners and city slickers are welcome.
You will learn by doing
During horse pack trips and multiday rides, you travel through rugged terrain and take on new challenges as you go. You will become confident in your horseback riding abilities pretty fast. The Guides are competent horse wranglers and will be happy to share their experience and knowledge through each stage of your journey.
From saddling your horse to learning the famous diamond hitch, depending on the type of horse adventure package you book, you will come back from your trip with new skills you never knew existed.
Trip Highlights of a multi-day horseback riding adventure
You will travel through a world of new impressions and unforgettable moments.
Enjoy the grand views of awe-inspiring mountains and valleys that expand beyond the horizon.
Venture into the mountain habitats of California Bighorn sheep, mule deer, mountain goats, moose, black bears, grizzly bears, wolves, and marmots and learn about Canadian Wildlife.
Partner up with the horse that takes you safely through ancient forests across colourful river valleys.
Accommodation and Meals
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.
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.
