When it comes to horseback riding, Canadian Wilderness Adventures has it dialed. They have adventure and knowledge filled tour that goes out twice a day with a crew of amazingly friendly horses and staff.
The Hokey Pokey - Gold Rush Tour heads out 9:00am daily and travels through the Callaghan forest all the way up to Northair Goldmines. The trail is wide open and easy riding gives any ability of rider an experience they feel in control of. At the top you get a break at a beautiful little creek before climbing up the forest switchbacks to the historic goldmine. It is here where you get to marvel at the valley below and all of the stunning views the valley is known for.
The afternoon tour is the Hidden Valley – Waterfall Trip where you get to really take a step back into nature. This tour takes you deep inside the amazing old growth forests and weaves its way up to the 150 foot Alexander Falls along a wagon trail. Along the way you will come into contact with trees over 1000 years old and it is so quiet the only thing you hear is your horse’s footsteps. These views make you feel like you are back in the olden days travelling by horseback through the untouched nature. This trip leaves at 12:00pm and goes until 3:30pm, both trips take on average 3 hours from start to finish.
