A Note To Our International Guests
Unleash your inner cowboy/cowgirl in the “heartland” of spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park, a world UNSECO site in the majestic Canadian Rockies! The Province of Alberta (the size of Texas) in Canada is known as one of the most scenic places in the world. Indeed, several media outlets (The New York Times, National Geographic Explorer – see their January 2017 issue – USA Today and Lonely Planet) have all rated “Canada” as the number one travel choice destination for 2017. What is the best way to see our incredible Rockies especially with a limited schedule? There are several options. Trail rides in Alberta are varied; there are guest ranch vacations, horseback riding packages, cattle ranches and other horse riding products. What the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (T.R.C.R.) offers is a very unique trail ride in Alberta, in fact the most unique of any other kind of trail riding holiday. Back country travel in our mountain National Parks is restricted to hiking or horseback riding; there is simply no other way to go to see this majestic country. Your options are either backpacking (with all the necessary gear, expertise and physical endurance) or come with us on a horseback riding vacation that is like no other. We spoil you from “dawn until dusk” and take you to places that not even the backpackers go! In short, horse riding is the only we to go! We have licensed professional interpretative guides; our meals are first class and our camp, although rustic (this is wilderness camping) has all the amenities for a great horse riding vacation. Our evenings are filled with our friendly famous Canadian hospitality (with live cowboy entertainment) as we endeavour to immerse you in our historic western cowboy culture; it is horseback riding in Alberta, in a league of its own. Come and join us for, “the best vacation of your life”™ for a true western holiday! You will never be the same again on this holiday on horseback!
