Live the Lore of the West with Brewsters
Saddle up with Brewster Adventures and experience the backcountry horse experience holiday of a lifetime in Alberta’s world-renowned Rocky Mountains.
View breath-taking vistas from horseback while exploring wild, untouched back country, as the friendly Brewster’s folks lead the way in your most exciting vacation yet. Brewster’s has offered guests an authentic cowboy experience since the early 1900’s, treating visitors to overnight horse trips in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. These one-of-a-kind two or four-day excursions offer incredible views, rugged fun and overnight stays in cozy rustic cabins.
“Our mountain adventures give visitors a real sense of accomplishment,” said Kevin Stanton, Brewster’s General Manager. “When they finish the trip, they’re really satisfied. It’s ‘Wow, we really did that!’”
Brewster Mountain Pack Trains has a proud heritage of hospitality – the family settled in the Banff area in 1886 and today boasts six generations of offering truly special getaways.
Enjoy the tranquility of mountain streams and wooded backcountry as you travel along the Old Horse Drive Trail used by the Brewster family for more than 100 years. Keep a sharp eye out for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, elk, deer and even wild horses while riding through majestic mountain passes.
You’ll see some of the most spectacular areas of the Rockies as you ride the ridge of Yamnuska Mountain along the border of Banff National Park, and rest at the famed Brewster Company Ranch along the way. Discover stunning natural landmarks like Ghost River, Meadow Creek and Black Rock Mountain.
At the end of a full day’s ride, stretch your legs around a campfire and chow down on hearty country food – the kind that kept the cowboys of old fed on the trail. Swap tales under a beautiful starlit sky that is like no other. Stanton says you may even hear the Meadow Creek wolf pack, as they serenade you with their lonely calls. Fly-fishing can also be worked into the trip package.
Everything is provided including sleeping bags and Brewster’s offer a flexible schedule that can accommodate guests on short booking notice.
Brewster’s also offer other wonderful western experiences including |Group Western Barbecues at their Dance Barn in Lake Louise as well as Winter Sleigh Rides. Of special note the Brewster Family is celebrating their 100th anniversary at their Riding Stables in Lake Louise in 2008 where they offer famous rides to the Plain of Six Glacier and Lake Agnes teahouses.
