What You Can Expect

1 Hour Banff Horseback Riding Adventures

Friendly guide

Get a different perspective of the incredible scenery of Banff, during this 1-hour horse trip along the Bow 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.

Begin the day at Warner Stables (check the start time with your tour operator) where you’ll meet your guide, receive a safety briefing and select your horse. From there, the tour heads out on one of two different options.

On this tour you will mount up for a ride to the natural hot springs, one of nine such sites in the area, and continue on a loop around the nearby marsh. From there the trail follows the placid Bow River, taking in the great views of Mount Norquay and Cascade Mountain in the distance.

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 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!!

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2017

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.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2017

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.
