High Country Vacations helps
the young and old experience a
mountain way of life …


Traditional Pack Trips
… for families & groups 

High Country Vacation’s family travel packages, take you back to basics where there’s time to share and connect with your family and friends. The adventure trail ride is geared to let even your youngest “cowpoke” live the days of old like the Indians, cowboys & mountain men. We match you with a sturdy, reliable trail horse for your horseback riding wilderness tour. Our adventure travel vacations take you into the spectacular Willmore Wilderness Park.

Willmore Wilderness Park is directly north of Banff and Jasper National Parks. The rocky mountain trails will take you through high alpine passes with breathtaking views. Tour remote lakes and streams where you can try your hand at trout fishing, or simply relax while camping. Listen to the quiet of the wilderness. The wildlife and wildflowers are spectacular.

Enjoy a stroll to see old Indian cabins and gravesites. Stop to smell the abundant wildflowers, enjoy wildlife watching and bring your camera to capture those special moments during your family adventure vacation! Look forward to a freshly baked apple pie from the wood stove after a delicious “cowboy’ meal. In the evening your family and friends will laugh at the tall tales told by the old timers around the campfire.

High Country Vacations have been guiding and outfitting in the Canadian Rocky Mountains since 1959. You can expect a warm smile and a friendly handshake as we pass this way of life on to you and your family.

General Information:

The trail rides start at Sulphur Gates Staging Area, just north of Grande Cache, Alberta. You don’t have to have horseback riding experience, as our horses are very gentle and sure-footed. We breed our horses for their gentleness. Before the adventure trip begins, we will match you with a horse and run through the “Do’s and Don’ts”. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
