Explore the Backcountry in Comfort
Consider a multi-day lodge vacation!
You get to travel on horseback along a historic pack trail that winds through the craggy Sundance Range, venturing to places most Banff visitors never get to see. At the end of each vista-filled day, you can unwind at a comfortable backcountry lodge.
Trip duration: 1-5 nights, depending on the package
Lodge Vacations are perfect for:
- Those with at least basic horseback riding experience
- People who love the outdoors – but want to spend evenings in rustic comfort
“The views were spectacular as we went up the mountains, through forestry where we were the only 3 people for miles around”.
