Snow-capped peaks, glistening glaciers and sweeping vistas are the allure of Banff National Parl. Enjoy an exhilarating horseback trip through the untamed wilderness. Conquer on horseback the rugged back-country trails during the day and return to a rustic, yet cosy, mountain lodge each evening.

Banff - Sundance Lodge

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)
