Take an adventure tour that highlights the unique cultural and natural charm of Alberta’s best kept secret. Be sure to bring your camera. Walk a wolfdog sanctuary along beautiful pathways of aspen trees, and photograph the wolfdogs as they lurk in the grass within their fenced enclosures. Then have an included lunch in a saloon from 1935 set within a living historic village, and visit the village's gift shops for one of a kind gifts and souvenirs. Stop at a little known sanctuary for Alberta's wild horses. While there, go on an off-road wagon ride through the woods in search of a local herd of wild horses. The ranch rehabilitates these majestic animals, and you're provided with the opportunity to interact with and learn about what they do. Finally, taste a selection of honey wine (called mead) at an artisan micro-meadery - a backroads destination that you'll love. There, you'll taste their product, try some honey, check out their patio overlooking their gorgeous property, and take a drink while walking along their wooded pathways through a grove of owl habitat. Then, take country roads back to Banff and Canmore in search of wild animals... and be dropped off just in time for dinner. There is no other tour like ours! DAY TRIP $159 each (1-3 people) $149 each (4+ people)
