Pack Horse Trips

Wildlife Viewer

5 Days

A mountain journey that will change your life

Ride a horse when you want to (even if you’ve never ridden before!) and hike when you want to. You’ll travel through the wilderness, along valley bottoms and riverbeds and drink in the majestic mountains all around you. Life is elemental here – your perspective will shift as you experience the freedom of the trail.


Day 1
Meet at the trailhead and pack in to Big Cabin

Day 2
Relax, wild life viewing, riding, fishing etc…

Day 3
Day trip to a side valley to get above tree line

Day 4
Wildlife viewing

Day 5
Pack out to the trailhead

On departure day, you and the other guests will meet at the trailhead where you’ll meet your guides and get acquainted with your horse. After packing up, we’ll mount up and have a leisurely ride to our base camp – Big Cabin, with lunch served on the trail.

Riding along welldefined horse trails, you’ll travel through lush alpine meadows and majestic Douglas Fir forests and past pristine sparkling mountain lakes. If the urge to stop and fish hits you, we’ll stop. After all – time is boundless in the wilderness!

More Facts

Big Cabin is very comfortable, with complete wilderness cooking and dining facilities. All your meals will be prepared by our trail cook, with the help of your guides. Sleeping accommodations are single, bunkhouse style cabins. We sleep on comfortable sleeping pads and a sleeping bag that you provide.

On the second day we relax, watch wildlife, fish, and/or ride. Whatever “wilderness” you want to experience.

On the third day, after a hearty breakfast, we will ride to above tree line so you can revel in the spectacular scenery of the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy. Wildlife will greet you around all corners. A bagged lunch will be provided.

Day four will continue your “wilderness” adventure. More riding, wildlife viewing, fishing and more time to revel in the days’ adventure.

Day five will see you beginning the day in relaxation mode while your guides and wranglers “pack”! Once the horses are ready, your trip down the mountain begins, but the wildlife viewing doesn’t end. You will return to the trailhead where you must say good bye to your travelling mates and horse.
