So, what makes these two river crossing rides different? Well, the first obvious difference is time. While we definitely recommend the 3 hour horseback ride to capture a birds-eye view of Banff as you ride along the base of Mount Rundle, we understand sometimes schedules don’t allow for longer rides.
Perhaps a 1 hour ride is just what you need to fulfill your Rocky Mountain horseback experience, and that’s okay! Our one hour Spray River Banff horseback riding trail ride is equally as immersive and takes you along the Fairmont Banff Springs’ golf course while giving guests an unforgettable perspective of the ‘Castle in the Rockies’.
Of course, topped with the added excitement of crossing the Spray River, the one-hour ride is just a small portion of our longer half-day Sulphur Mountain Ride that also runs up 2/3rds of the way up the Sulphur Mountain with return views of Rundle Mountain.
