Or you can enjoy a carriage ride through Banff and along the Bow River. You can even take overnight trips to backcountry lodges. The horses are calm and well-trained. They know what to do, even with newbies on their backs and your guide will help identify points of interest, such as a beaver dam or an eagle’s nest, or tidbits about the area’s history.
