06 Days Rocky Mountain Expedition Rides
GRT#03 Rocky Mountain Expedition
Overview: The most challenging and rugged trips we offer are the Expedition rides, designed for the outdoor enthusiast. New camps are established daily as the expedition penetrates further into the mountains. You will visit isolated areas of Banff National Park that few have an opportunity to experience and travel high mountain passes and valleys that are of unsurpassed beauty. The special Expedition trip gives our guests the best of both worlds. It is designed for those who are specifically interested in wildlife in the park, while still being able to travel through spectacular mountain scenery. Here you get to brush up your camp "skills", pitch your tent, haul a bucket or two of water, and help gather fire wood. Guest participation is a very important part of these trips. A maximum of 9 guests are allowed on the moving trips and duffel is kept at a weight not exceeding 30 lbs In 1992 a wildlife corridor was established in the Spray Valley, limiting human access to the area.This valley was designated a carnivore conservation area due to the large numbers of bears, cougars and wolves making home in this valley. We are pleased to offer a limited number of Horserback Expeditions through this area accompanied by a Parks Canada researcher. These interpreters will offer an inside look at the animal population of this unique corridor.
