Enjoy this one-hour horseback ride across the Spray River in Banff. If you’ve never been riding a horse before then you will be paired with the perfect horse so you can enjoy a comfortable ride. Before starting the tour your guide will provide a brief riding instruction and then you will be on your way.
Breathe in the pine-spiced mountain air as you approach the Bow Falls. You will also pass by the famous Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course on this ride – one of the most immaculately manicured courses in Canada.
Continue along the edge of the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, and cross through the waters once more. A partial climb up Sulphur Mountain brings you through a wooded residential area and back to the corrals.
The most unique feature of this trip is crossing the Spray River. On hotter days, your horse may even decide to cool itself off by splashing water onto its belly – it’s an experience unlike anything else.
