An experience full of western Canadian culture and landscapes, the Cowboy Country tour allows guests from all over the world staying in Banff to see how the locals work and live.
Departing from Banff hotels and traveling east along the Trans-Canada highway the first stop will be at the Chiniki Stoney gallery an interpretive gallery with a history of first nations relationship with the land.
A short drive further, the tour will stop at the Yamnuska Wolfdog sanctuary where dogs are rescued and cared for, a happy home for these beautiful animals. After an interpretive tour of the sanctuary the tour continues east for a short distance along the Bow River and through the Wildcat hills to the town of Cochrane where the Cowboy Trail intersects the urban world. A classic cowboy lunch and a visit to the Historic downtown will be enjoyed along with some classic boutique stores.
After lunch the group will head up to the Stockman Cowboy museum for a build your own brand experience. Put together your name or family logo on an iron, heat it up over an open fire and brand a piece of reclaimed barn board, yours to take home!
Tour includes transportation, all entry fees and classic Cowboy lunch.
