Saddle up for a 1-hour trip through the celebrated landscape of Banff National Park on this guided horseback-riding adventure. Get out of the car and onto the trails of the Bow River or the Spray River, where you’ll enjoy the area’s beautiful outdoor environment, largely unchanged from the days of the pioneers. This equine-themed odyssey includes a guide, use of a horse, and all necessary equipment.
  • 1-hour horseback ride through Banff National Park
  • Ride a horse to natural sulfur springs
  • Ride along the Bow River or the Spray River (depending on option booked)
  • Learn about the history of the national park from a guide
Get a different perspective of the incredible scenery of Banff, during this 1-hour horse trip along the Bow River or Spray River. This riding experience provides visitors with a first-hand taste of the wild landscape around Banff, much as the early settlers would have seen it, while mounted on horseback.
If you chose to cover the Bow River area, head to the natural sulfur hot springs. Follow the trail, which loops around a marsh near the Bow River. As you ride, catch views of Mt. Norquay and the Cascade Mountain in the distance.
If you chose to cover the Spray River area, you'll pass Bow Falls, the famous Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, and cross through the tranquil Spray River as you gain a better understanding for the untouched wilderness.

Great experience

Great experience, great price, friendly and helpful people, would definitely do it all over again, it was also very beautiful.
Lots of fun even in the mud

We took the hour tour after a big rainstorm so there was a lot of mud. It took longer than the hour allotted but i was not complaining. I rode Boundary and he was a very sweet and well behaved boy. Be prepared for mosquitos!
Excellent experience.

Great for beginners of all ages. Staff very helpful and friendly.Very conscientious making sure all cents are safe. Gave me a chance to reacquaint myself with horseback riding. Last time I rode was almost 30 years ago!

The staff were great, the views spectacular. The only word of caution is that if you've had any horseback riding experience you will find this ride boring as there is no galloping or cantering allowed,slow walk for 2 hours. Ladies don't do your hair as it's mandatory you wear a helmet that's supplied by the barn, not the cleanest.

The tour is great and the lady guide is very thoughtful and responsible. What I'm going to complain is the rate that I got from VIATOR is the exactly same that we can get from their online official website. This is the first time that I get no savings via Viator!!

Excellent adventure. Very safe. Good views of the area. Our guide, Randy, was terrific and gave us insight not only on what we were seeing on the ride, but also good advice on where to go in the park.

The staff was very friendly, helpful and provided helmets for all riders. The check-in was a bit chaotic - no verification of payment or ID was required. Although the online registration requested riding level it made no difference, most riders were inexperienced and we were all treated the same. The ride was very slow and the mosquitoes were terrible.
