The 1 hour Spray River Ride takes you across the tranquil Spray River in Banff. Take in the beautiful views of the Bow Falls and the surrounding Mountains.
Breathe in the pine-spiced mountain air as you approach the Bow Falls. You’ll also pass by the famous Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course on this ride – one of the most immaculately manicured courses in Canada.
Continue along the edge of the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, and cross through the waters once more. A partial climb up Sulphur Mountain brings you through a wooded residential area and back to the corrals.
The most unique feature of this trip is crossing the Spray River. On hotter days, your horse may even decide to cool itself off by splashing water onto its belly – it’s an experience unlike anything else.
