Horseback riding in Alberta: the Western Mountains
A genuine adventure spent in the Kananaskis area, close to the scenic Canadian Rockies. We try to have the least possible environmental impact and for this reason we reserve this fantastic experience for small groups: we do not offer luxury and substitutes for adventures for tourists, but the unspoiled nature of the mountains combined with a beautiful team spirit, breathtaking scenery, good food and the opportunity to learn to live with our horses for a few days immersed in the Canadian scenery.
Departures on request from 1st May to 31st October
PARTICIPANTS: MIN 1 MAX 7
Puck up from Calgary airport at 4.00 pm and transfer of about an hour to the Ranch which is located a few miles from the picturesque village of Braag Creek, at the foot of the rocky mountains.
Check-in and welcome dinner.
Breakfast and first encounter with the horses. Today we will take a walk around Whiskey Ridge.
Today we plan to ride around 4 hours west of the village of Braag Creek, where we will then stop for a short tour and some shopping before returning to the ranch.
We will ride to North Fork which is approximately 23 miles southwest of the ranch. There will be incredible scenery on the rocky mountains and especially in September you will cross the forest in its most incredible magnificence.
We will go further into the unspoiled nature of the mountains, and we will reach up to 3000 meters, where the vegetation, now sparse, will give way to rocks.
As the last day and culmination of this adventure we will have an incredible panorama from a viewpoint at 2100 meters, from which we will observe the hundreds of kilometers of peaks that extend to the east.
After breakfast, departure around 9.30 am and transfer to Calgary airport. Calculate a flight departing around 13.00 for Italy.
