Experience the unspoiled wilderness of Banff on horseback!

This adventure takes you along the glacier-fed waters of the Bow River, one of the best spots in Banff to spot elk, deer or even moose roaming along the shores. Follow the historic Storm pack 

trail, travelled by renowned explorer Erling Storm in the early 1900s, while taking in awe-evoking views of the Sundance mountain range.

Meander along a trail that takes you to the tranquil Bow River. Relax and enjoy a cowboy coffee by campfire along the way before arriving at Sundance Lodge, secluded but just 16 kilometres (10 miles) from town.  The cozy Sundance Lodge gives you a surprisingly comfortable spot to rest your head.  At night, relax on the porch or snuggle by the fire, devour gourmet backcountry cuisine and swap tales about the day’s adventures with your fellow riders.


Sundance 2-Day & 3-Day Horseback Riding Adventures are for perfect for all ages, families or groups of friends because anyone can do it and the journey, overall, is surprisingly comfortable.
