Anchor D Guiding & Outfitting specializes in true Western experiences deep in the Canadian Rockies. Immerse yourself in mountain beauty on horseback getaways that take you through high alpine meadows beside clear mountain streams. From guided half- and full-day rides in the high ridges of Kananaskis Country to multi-day overnight adventure and hunting trips in the Alberta Rockies, Anchor D excursions suit riders of all tastes. You'll enjoy breathtaking scenery, ride top-quality horses matched to your riding ability, and build friendships with fellow campers as you share delicious meals, gather around a crackling campfire at night or enjoy your shared love of peaceful mountain mornings.


The folks at Anchor D have hunted these mountains for over 25 years and their success rate shows it. Based at mountain tent camps or the main lodge, Anchor D leads horseback hunts for elk, deer, moose and black bear. Horses can take you to corners of the wilderness that are otherwise inaccessible!


By horseback you'll have access to mountainous terrain that would otherwise escape you. Anchor D adventures take you high above the timberline where the views are simply spectacular. Explore rushing streams, alpine meadows, productive fishing lakes and let the crisp mountain air refresh your spirit.

Cabins, Cottages, and Chalets

Grandpa's Cabin or Hunter's Cabin are available for guests in search of a little more mountain luxury. These one- or two-bedroom log cabins boast a full kitchen, loft and magnificent views. Spend your days on guided horseback rides, visiting area attractions or just enjoying the mountain air.

Dude Ranch

Saddle up for overnight horseback adventures that take you to productive fishing lakes and unforgettable mountain passes – you can even see the Continental Divide! Enjoy top-quality horses expertly matched to your riding ability on the trail and hearty meals and comfortable cots at camp.


Draft horses & covered wagons transport food for camping on seven-day moving trips as riders explore alpine trails and enjoy the scenery high above the timberline. On these fully outfitted trips, all meals and equipment are included and a cup of hot coffee is always waiting for you at the next camp!
