Guided Horseback Pack Trips

Are you looking for an environmentally sustainable experience that allows you to connect deeply with nature?


Our guided horseback pack trips are designed to immerse you in the wilderness of the Chilcotin Ark, teach you about the importance of conservation, and give you hands-on experience with horse and wilderness skills. Some of the opportunities that you and your family will experience on one of our horseback pack trips are:
  • A wilderness full of adventure and confidence-building challenges
  • connection with nature and yourself, and help others connect too
  • join in real conservation projects such as species population counts
  • The opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on your life’s purpose
  • Learn to saddle and care for your horse
  • develop your wilderness skills while riding historic trails
  • Ride through wildflower meadows to the mountain tops
  • Choose a 5 or 7 day trip with all meals and accommodation included

On our horse pack trip, arrive at the ranch and enjoy lunch in our historic lodge. Then meet your horse, learn how to saddle, take a short ride to prepare for tomorrow and review the trip itinerary with your guides.

Early next morning bring in your horses, saddle your riding horse, learn to pack the pack horses then ride out to camp. Unsaddle and stake your horses in the wildflower meadows, cook dinner over the campfire and enjoy the night in your wall tent, allowing you to stay close to nature throughout the trip.

The next morning walk out to the wildflower meadows to bring in your horses. Return to camp for breakfast. Enjoy a day ride to the mountain tops and learn about the flora and fauna. Record every animal you see in our wildlife sightings form to contribute to habitat and population management. Remove invasive species and collect data along the way such as grizzly hair from rub trees for DNA analysis. Return to camp to stake the horses in the meadow then enjoy dinner cooked over the campfire. On our seven day trip, you will have two more days of day rides from camp.

The next day, pack up camp and ride back to the ranch, reflectin on your experience and making the most of your nature connection.

On your final morning, learn how to do bareback riding, archery and biathlon target shooting before lunch with a final review of the week’s adventure.
