Ranch Based Grizzly and Black Bear conservation and Tracking Trip

Are you looking for an experience that allows you to disconnect from city life and reconnect to nature?

  • Learn the habitats and behaviour of black and grizzly bears
  • Track bears by horseback, hiking or truck
  • learn the difference between black and grizzly bears
  • Escape the distractions of daily life in our remote mountain setting
  • Connect with nature and yourself
  • Join in real conservation projects that safeguard the local ecosystem
  • Experience a 4 or 7 day trip with all meals and accommodation provided

On your ranch based grizzly and black bear tracking 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 the rest of the trip and review the trip itinerary with your guides.

Next morning bring in and saddle your horses then ride out on a morning ride to get to know the area, scouting for grizzly and black bears at prime spots along the way. After returning to the ranch for lunch, ride out again in the afternoon on a new trail, looking for bears in different locations. 

Early morning and evening are the best times to see wildlife so head out at sunrise and sunset by horse, foot or truck to scout for grizzly and black bears. Along the way you might also see mountain goat, mule deer, moose and other animals in their natural habitat.

Learn about where to find grizzly and black bears and their different habitats and behaviours. 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.

On the last full day, enjoy a full day ride to the mountain tops and learn more about the flora and fauna.

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.
