Jasper National Park is an amazing place for lots of outdoor activities, one of the best being mountain horseback riding. Horses have been a great way to get around in the Canadian Rockies and Jasper National Park for long time, and going on a tour is a great way to experience how Jasper might have felt to pioneers, and is awesome for getting way out into this huge wilderness.

Horseback is a great way to see the Canadian Rockies.

Camping via horseback is a great way to get out really far into Jasper’s backcountry, where you can sit around campfires in the mountains under a blanket of stars are always a pleasant experience, and adding the nostalgic background of horses and tents only enhances the adventure Jasper National Park can offer.

Horseback Adventures Ltd. is Jasper National Park’s premier company for guided horseback vacations, trail rides and pack trips for Jasper National Park, Willmore Wilderness Park and Rock Lake Solomon Creek and Wildland Park.
