A free afternoon to experience the authentic and vibrant community and beautiful surroundings of the Town of Banff. Nestled high in the Canadian Rockkies, Banff is one of the most precious, protected places in the world. Take in the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains and glacier-fed lakes and wildlife at its wildest.
Meet the other members of your group at the Warner Stables in Banff at 09:30. At the stables you are met by your guides and mount up on your horses for the 16 km ride to Banff Sundance Lodge via the glacier-fed waters of the Bow River, Healy and Brewster Creeks. (L,D)
After a relaxing evening at Sundance Lodge you mount back up for a second full day in the saddle with a day ride up the Brewster Creek Trail. The group spends lunch on the banks of the Brewster Creek; the ride home may take guests through the weaving river trail or the historic Storm pack trail with the rugged Sundance Range dominating the eastern horizon. Returning to Sundance Lodge for the evening, relax or spend some time with your new found friends. (B,L,D)
Bid good-bye to your hosts at Sundance Lodge and mount up for a leisurely ride back to Warner Stables with a lunch stop on the banks of Healy Creek. Arrive at the stables at approximately 16:30. Make your way to your hotel for a last night in Banff. (B,L)
