Suggested Itinerary

From Calgary, head towards the mountains to see the real west in the spectacular Kananaskis Valley. In the afternoon, you will visit an authentic ranch, meet the horses, learn some techniques and then saddle up to take a 3.5 hour horseback riding adventure through the backcountry. Your team will lead you along various trails, under the wide open skies and put you in a place where you can breathe in the majestic scenery. Depart the ranch and make the scenic 40 minute drive to Canmore to check in to your superior hotel room at the Pocaterra Inn and Waterslides.
If you are looking for a place to grab a bite, visit the Grizzly Paw. They serves up delicious traditional fare such as domestic and exotic, hand made burgers, salads, fish and chips, and other delightful dishes. Plus they make fantastic beers and soda’s with freshwater that streams out of the Canmore reservoir.

(additional charge)

Add the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary to the itinerary before your riding trip. You will go inside their Engadine enclosure to the viewing platform with one of their guides and learn all about the Sanctuary and get an introduction to what wolfdogs are all about through their 30-minute presentation. This is a great way to photograph one of their packs of wolfdogs as well as having full access to your very own wolfdog expert. Upgrade your Wolfdog experience to the Interactive Tour of the Sanctuary and come face to face with the animals. Or you can upgrade your accommodations at the Pocaterra Inn in Canmore to include a king size bed or a suite.
Wake up, enjoy a hot breakfast and check out of your hotel. Today you make your way into the belly of a mountain, so stretch, pick up your gear from the office and grab some water for your next amazing experience. After a short hike, your guide will prepare you as you enter the cave. You will spend the next 2 hours underground climbing, crawling, wiggling and sliding your way through water-worn passages, past prehistoric bones, and investigating ancient cave formations. You will view some stunning features of this cave system before returning to the surface. Once you have completed this activity, refuel with a coffee, tea or meal from town before you hit the road to head home.
Wherever you travel, stop along the way to enjoy the view.
