Camping Summer Outdoor Activities

Camping is quintessentially Albertan. Everything (coffee, bacon, beer, bad ghost stories) is way better around a campfire. • Your call: Pick your favourite vista (mountains, foothills, Badlands, forest) and there’s a campground or RV park there for you. • Come unprepared: No tent? No problem. Equipped camping in national parks comes with all the basics. Comfort camping, or glamping, (found around the province) is like a hotel room in the great outdoors, complete with heaters and real beds. • So Alberta: Book a guided multi-day canoe and horseback camping trip. You’ll follow the same routes once travelled by whiskey traders and the police who chased them.

Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies

Calgary, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Experience your inner cowboy/cowgirl while exploring the backcountry of the majestic Canadian Rockies! After 94 years of leading beginners and seasoned riders from all over the world into the spectacular backcountry, The Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (TRCR) know how to give you a dream vacation… and that “hidden gem” you been looking for? Well,...you just found it! The TRCR is a not-for-profit club of enthusiasts who enjoy taking new guests out to explore these majestic mountains with the comforts of home, and will host six, six-day professionally guided trail rides this summer. The breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains awakens the adventurist in all of us of what many believe is the most beautiful scenery in the world. This "walk in the park" is like no other you will ever experience. Unlike most backcountry horseback trips, the Trail Riders set up a main base camp and, at the end of each day on the trail, return for "happy hour," a hot home cooked dinner, and some much-needed shut-eye in the cozy tents and Indian-style teepees complete with cots and mattresses. The rustic wilderness camp has a hot shower, hot washing water, separate washing areas for cowboys and cowgirls, and a large dining tent for their 4-star meals. Expect the evening to include any combination of: camp fire singing, cowboy poetry, square dancing, story telling, educational talks, skits and live western music! If you can stand a week of this fun and frivolity, you will become a member of this historic and western cultural society. Horse experience is not essential as this is a "dude operation" and over 50% of the riders are +50, and 70% are women! Put it this way; if there ever was a quintessential, "bucket-list" Western Canadian trip, this is it! Check out their 5-star ratings with Trip Advisor and testimonial videos on their homepage. This year the TRCR celebrates 95 years of history and western cowboy culture in the Canadian Rockies. The TRCR (since 1923) is “Canada's original trail ride.....”
