Overview

The Bar U Ranch is your opportunity to live like a cowboy! Ride into history on a wagon pulled by Percheron horses to discover the life of a ranching cowboy from the late 1800's. Try your hand at roping a steer or repair a bridle, learn the old-style ranching ways. Wander the trails and dirt roads to see the cattle, saddle horses, chickens and other farm animals. Venture into the 100-year-old barns, slaughterhouse, post office, and of course the cookhouse to experience "home on the range". Hungry, savor a meal at Country Fresh Kitchens or unearth a unique souvenir from the Bar U Gift Shop. The Bar U, a National Historic Site, run by Parks Canada was established in 1882 as the Northwest Cattle Company, it is one of the longest standing ranches in Alberta. All back-dropped by the Rocky Mountains - it's a true Alberta experience!
