Destinations

Mill Creek, Alberta

We set up camp half way up the valley, tether the horses, spread out our gear and the sleeping bags in the teepee or the cook tent, and start enjoying the great outdoors.

Steaks and baked potatoes cooked over an open fire, dutch oven dinners, and bacon and eggs on the cook stove are some of the great meals enjoyed under the blue skies.

At the salt lick you often spot bear, deer, wolf and cougar tracks. See where early pioneers in 1910 cut and hauled huge logs out of the bush with horses.

You can ride to the remote Hanging or Hidden valley almost at the top of a mountain. You'll have to grab your horse's tail to scramble up slopes that are too steep to ride up. It's exciting! Then you continue right to the top of the highest ridge for amazing views.

Dee will take you to the very tops of mountains with spectacular views of distance peaks at the same level you are. It's amazing!

You'll be so high up that you will ride through snow banks in August, snow banks that won't disappear until buried in more snow in winter! You might even see a herd of elk run over a nearby ridge.

They will take you to trappers' cabins with the secret locks, old marten and fisher running pole traps, a secluded salt lick, and a log bear trap that's over 80 years old complete with the clawed trees.

Lunch is enjoyed along the trail, perhaps beside a crystal clear mountain top lake or maybe in a flower filled meadow. We pack the lunch in our saddle bags and stop whenever and whereever the mood strikes! You might end up sharing your lunch with a curious rock pica or marmot while watching an eagle soar overhead.

After a little siesta we're off for more sights and adventures!

Why not come and join us for the vacation adventure of a lifetime? We know you'll have fun!
