Guest Ranches & Farm Stays Attractions & Entertainment

You know what they say about all work and no play? That doesn’t apply on a working ranch. Chores like fixing fence, branding cattle and feeding the animals make dinner around the campfire taste extra delicious. ● Work light, play hard: A guest ranch – the cushier ranch experience – might include spa services after a multi-day horseback camping trip along pioneer trails. ● Unplug: Some ranches and farms are out of cell phone range. Sounds like the perfect excuse to become a pro at tossing horsehoes. ● Timing: Is your heart’s desire driving cattle out to pasture? The season dictates the ranch work that needs to be done, so plan ahead.

Learn about Alberta’s rich western heritage, from boots, buckles and blacksmiths to cattle drives and horse tales.
