When it comes to horseback riding, Copper Cayuse Outfitters has it dialed in. They offer hourly, half, or full-day trips as well as overnight excursions with a crew of amazingly friendly horses and staff. Tours run from May to October each year and must be booked at least a day in advance.
The hourly tours leave at various times throughout the day and travel along the dyke and Lillooet Rivers and to grassy fields filled with wildflowers.
Half & Full Day Tours
The Half-Day Tour departs twice a day at 9am and 1pm. You'll have the opportunity to explore Whistler's backcountry and stunning viewpoints. There is the option to add on an authentic Cowboy Supper near Birkenhead Lake. Another option to add onto the Half Day tour is the Medicinal Plant Horseback Riding Tour. This unique tour, led by a lady named Evelyn, will educate you on some of the medicinal properties of a variety of plants and flowers along the tour.
The Full-Day Tour provides the extra WOW factor for a tour. Ride through steep mountain trails and see the beautiful Fowl River Falls and Sun God Mountain. This tour departs at 9am and returns at 6pm.
Have you ever been horseback riding and just wish you had more time? Copper Cayuse Outfitters overs two varieties of their overnight trips. The first, Historic Li-lik-hel Gold Mine Horseback Riding Expedition is a total of 3 days and 2 nights full of riding. You'll have the unique opportunity to pass through trails originally used by miners in the early 1900s. This historic tour will open your eyes to Pemberton's history and the beautiful mountainous region.
The Second overnight Trip option is the Tenquille Lake Horseback Riding Expedition. This excursion is also a 3 day, 2-night trip. In this tour you will explore Birkenhead Lake and Tenquille Lake as well as the scenic alpine meadows and landscapes surrounding the areas.
The best thing about the tour is that you get to not only ride but you learn quite a bit about the area you are exploring. Head out and learn about the trees and the area and how the horse you fell in love with came to be there. We guarantee it will be an experience that you will never forget.
