Horseback Riding in Jasper National Park – Book Here!
Jasper National Park is a stunning vacation spot for those interested in pack trips and horseback trail rides. Horses have been a mode of transportation in the Canadian Rockies and Jasper National Park for decades, from the early trail explorers to the modern-day equestrian enthusiasts.
Jasper’s 1200-kilometer space still offers itself as a World Heritage Site for horse travel amongst its visitors. Go even further on the rustic side and try horse camping in the Jasper backcountry. Campfires in the mountains under a blanket of stars are always a pleasant experience, and adding the nostalgic background of horses and tents only enhances the adventure Jasper National Park can offer.
