Sky-piercing mountains stretch out across the landscape, their peaks crusted with ice and snow. The air is cool and fresh. And best of all, there’s an almost zen-like quiet out here. This is just another day on the trail when you go on our 6-day Halfway Lodge horseback adventure. You’ll pass by the shimmering waters of the Bow River, travel along a historic pack trail and then ride up Allenby Pass, where jagged rock formations line the route.
This adventure is far from ‘roughing it!
Riders meet 30 mins prior to scheduled departure time at Warner Stables. For those with a vehicle, free parking is available at the stables for the duration of the trip. Here you will meet your fellow riders and your guides for your trip. Slickers and saddle bags will be handed out if required and you will have time to organize your gear and ask any questions you may have. Your guides will then introduce you to your horses which have been specifically picked for you. Once you are comfortable you will mount up for the ten mile ride to Sundance Lodge via the glacier-fed waters of the Bow River, Healy and Brewster Creeks. Half way to the lodge you will stop and enjoy a hot lunch by the Bow River. After lunch we will continue along the trail into Sundance Lodge. Your lodge host awaits you. Settle into your room and freshen up, then join your fellow riders around the fire or on the deck to swop stories of your ride in.
The adventure continues southward with a ride up to Halfway Lodge. The trail winds along the historic Storm pack trail with the rugged Sundance Range dominating the eastern horizon.
Rider’s mount up with camera’s armed for the day ride up Allenby Pass, for many this is the highlight of the trip as you climb to an elevation of 8,100 ft!
This day offers guests an optional rest day or hike or short ride to a glacier fed lake.
After a warm good-bye to the cook and Halfway, the winding trail leads back along the Brewster creek to Sundance Lodge.
The gang gets together for one last day on the trail, a “soft” ten-mile ride from Sundance to Warner Stables, arriving at approximately 4:30 p.m. The adventure has come to a close, but the magic of your holiday will linger on to be relived and shared.
