With spring around the corner, it’s time to start planning for your family’s next big adventure. But, instead of taking the typical trip to a beach or amusement park, let your family indulge in something new like an exhilarating Holiday on Horseback with Warner Guiding & Outfitting.
Located in the heart of Alberta’s Banff National Park, Warner lets you experience unique and exciting pack trips you and your family will never forget.
The Backcountry Lodge Trip features one spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountain view after another. Ride your days away and spend your evenings in one of Warner's two historical lodges located far from the hustle and bustle of civilization.
Remote and without electricity, cell service, or Internet, the lodges are the perfect place to reconnect with friends, loved ones, and yourself.
The Sundance Lodge is framed by the calming lullaby of Brewster Creek and the stunning Sundance Mountain Range - the ideal place to unwind and rejuvenate after a long day of riding.
Boasting a country kitchen, a wood stove, hot showers, and a whopping 10 rooms, you and your family will have more than enough space to relax.
Warner’s other log accommodation, the Halfway Lodge, is just as relaxing as its companion. Built in the 1920s by mountain guide Erling Storm as a stopover for his guests traveling from Banff to Mount Assiniboine, Halfway remains mostly untouched except a few additions like a second story. Surrounded by towering Canadian peaks, you and up to 13 others can live the life of a mountain traveler with rustic touches like propane lanterns, candles, and wood stoves.
But, if you’re looking for an even more rustic escape, check out Warner’s other pack trip options.
A Wilderness Tent Trip is perfect if you love camping and riding outdoors, but don’t want the stress of planning a camping trip. Offering three different charming camps, enjoy delicious cooked meals, canvas tents that are already set up for you, and - of course - breathtaking Banff vistas.
Warner even lets you give something back to your Banff surroundings. Take an educational Interpretive Trip featuring leading authorities on topics like wildlife, photography, and mule-manship, and a portion of your trip will be donated to Banff National Park conservation.
Choose the pack trip that’s right for your family, and you’re sure to have a Holiday on Horseback you’ll never forget.
