Surrounded by incomparable scenery and wildlife, the ranch offers a wide range of activities from which to choose. In spring, the meadows are alive with wild flowers, in summer the sun-filled days are perfect for horseback riding, fishing, hiking, float trips and rafting. Autumn brings stunning fall colours – bright blue skies and crisp cool evenings. In winter, enjoy cross-country or Alpine skiing – just 30 minutes from the resort is the Lost Trail Powder Mountain Ski Resort – with an average yearly snowfall of 300 inches of powdery snow this is skiing without the long lift lines and crowds. Snowmobiling, snowshoeing or horseback riding through unspoiled snow-covered wilderness are also on offer. Then spend your evenings relaxing in front of a cozy fire.

 

Situated midway beteen Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, a stay at this fabulous ranch fits perfectly into a holiday to this stunning region.

Mention a holiday to Canada and most people think of a trip around the Rocky Mountains or visiting one of the many cities such as Toronto, Quebec or Montreal. But one of the lesser known areas to be explored is Saskatchewan and there is so much to see and do. If you like being in the great outdoors and experiencing the best nature has to offer this is the perfect place for you.

Here is a taste of what you can experience during your holiday to Saskatchewan:

Live like a cowboy with a stay on a working ranch. The southwest is steeped in history of ranching and western culture, you’ll learn how this plays an important part in the local economy.

Canoe the Clearwater – unspoiled wilderness, stunning scenery, thrilling white water, and great fishing opportunities, this CanadianHeritageRiver has something for everyone.

Trail the Mounties. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are some of the most recognisable law enforcement agencies in the world. Learn the history of the Mounties with a visit to Regina followed by Fort Battleford National Heritage site.

With half of Canada’s cultivated land being Saskatchewan there is an abundance of home grown produce on offer. Why not join a wine and cheese tasting, pick your own from the many varieties of fruit and vegetables on offer including cherries, raspberries and blue honeysuckle.

This is just a taste of what this great state has to offer, so contact us today on 01323 446550 or email info@experienceholidays.co.uk to discuss your bespoke, tailormade holiday to Saskatchewan.

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
