Your Experience

MAY - SEPTEMBER

Saddle up and head through the Prince Albert National Park into the Saskatchewan outback on a guided horse riding adventure. Set up camp on a remote lake in the Boreal forest where you can catch your supper and watch it be cooked by our team over the open flames of your campfire. Enjoy life as it was with the opportunity to see wild bison, deer, elk, moose, lynx, and many bird species. Fall asleep to the sound of loons, coyotes or even wolves under a bed of stars and perhaps a magnificent display of northern lights.

Give yourself an extra day to relax by the lake or continue your adventure down the many trails in the area. A true Canadian cowboy experience.


TRIP INCLUDES:

Minimum of 2 days riding and one night accommodations

  • Tents, sleeping Bags, cots, air mattresses, bed rolls at the Backcountry camp
  • Guides, horses, or wagon

ITINERARY

  • Depart from the ranch at roughly 10am (times can be customized) and arrive at the Backcountry Camp around 3-4pm as it is approximately a 5 hour ride.

  • Once the horses are unsaddled perhaps we can take one of two of them for a swim and you can join them!

  • After you have caught supper we can cook it over an open flame campfire. Bring whatever alcoholic beverages you like for around the campfire in the evenings.
