If you have ever yearned to experience the real Western way of life, then this destination should be on your travel agenda. Located with a stunning mountain backdrop it will not be long before they will have your horse saddled up ready to ride in to the Old West. Within a few minutes you will be forgetting the stress of modern life and concentrating on the scenery, wildlife and the huge horizons.

The real cowboys will be looking after you, telling tales of cowboy wisdom and way of life and improving your riding and cowboy skills. All done with the legendary Western hospitality.

Make sure you are there for a Friday and go along to the regular Friday Night Rodeos in the town of Dubois. The rodeos originated as a fun gathering to practice and show off ranching skills and have now developed into entertaining, competitive events. A night to remember.

Ranches of Wild West

Some lucky clients are already packing their bags to experience the ranches of the rolling plains and/or the Rocky Mountains of Canada and the United States. July and August are the busiest months for this type of holiday and the wild flowers are at their spectacular best. Only the very tops of the highest mountains have snow still on them. The long days ensure that you make the most of your time here.

The activities are those that you would expect here but also include some that you may not have thought of, such as going to guide school to improve (or learn) wilderness skills. One of the most popular activities is riding tours which vary in length from half a day to 2/3 days out in the mountains. At the end a day of being in the saddle you will camp out in one of many camps deep in the wilderness; with a fire going and your guide cooking a hearty and well earned meal.

If you prefer two wheels, then mountain bike trails and equipment is there or you could rely upon your legs to get you in to the beautiful wilderness. It is all about tailor making your trip to what you want to do. It can be as energetic or as laid back as you want. Or a mixture of both.

It is not too late to book something in the fall, when it is more peaceful, the days are shorter and crisper and the leaves on the trees are changing in to their autumn colours. In these regions you have the chance of seeing black bears, grizzlies, moose, big horn sheep and different sorts of deer. If you are really lucky you may see a cougar.

 So if you ever wanted to try the cowboy life or just wanted to get back to nature, then let us help you plan your own bespoke, tailor made holiday – either for this autumn or for next summer.  Please contact us on 01323 446550 or email: info@experienceholidays.co.uk
