When they finish the trip, they're really satisfied. It's 'Wow, we really did that!'

Saddle up with Brewster Mountain Pack Trains and experience the holiday of a lifetime in Alberta's world-renowned Rocky Mountains. View breath-taking vistas and explore the wild backcountry from horseback, as the friendly Brewster's folks lead the way in to an exciting mountain vacation.

Brewster's has offered guests an authentic cowboy experience for over a century, treating visitors to overnight pack trips in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. These one-of-a-kind two or four-day excursions offer incredible views, rugged fun and overnight stays in cozy rustic cabins.

"Our mountain adventure holidays give visitors a real sense of accomplishment," said Kevin Stanton, Brewster's General Manager. "When they finish the trip, they're really satisfied. It's 'Wow, we really did that!'"

Brewster Mountain Pack Trains has a proud heritage of hospitality - the family settled in the Banff area in 1886 and today boasts six generations of offering truly special getaways.

Enjoy the tranquility of mountain streams and wooded backcountry as you travel along the Old Horse Drive Trail used by the Brewster family for more than 100 years. Keep a sharp eye out for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, elk, deer and even wild horses while riding through majestic mountain passes.

Guests will see spectacular areas of the Rockies with a trail that passes through the ridge of Yamnuska Mountain along the border of Banff National Park , and rest at the famed Brewster Company Ranch along the way. They will also discover stunning natural landmarks like Ghost River, Meadow Creek and Black Rock Mountain.

At the end of a full day of horseback riding, riders enjoy a campfire and a hearty country meal- the kind that kept the cowboys of old fed on the trail. Guests can swap tales under a beautiful starlit sky that is like no other. Stanton says that the Meadow Creek wolf pack may even be heard serenading with their lonely calls.

Add fly-fishing into the trip package as well as other unique experiences, including Western barbecues and dances, winter sleigh rides and idyllic guest ranch getaways.
