My husband and I did the 4 hour Plain of Six Glaciers ride.We essentially had a private tour because we choice the first ride of the day and no one else was scheduled for that... More

Highly recommend this tour! It is slightly more expensive than the tours offered in nearby Banff but the standard of trek is much higher. I didn't ask for much information on the tours and just went with the 3 hr trek as it was the most I was willing to spend. My partner and I got a tour guide to... More

From booking, to riding, to personal attention, this family run business is a great time. They care about the horses and the owner works with horse rescue organizations. Our guide Tara narrated, answered questions and took pictures when asked throughout the trip. We did the 3 1/2 hour Bee Hive tour, weather was clear, two dismount breaks pleasant, and was... More

My husband and I did the 5 hour Plain of the Six Glaciers ride with Louisa and we had the absolute best time ever. I'm a horse girl and knew this was going to be the highlight of my vacation before we even got there but my husband who is comfortable with horses but hadn't ridden in over 20 years... More

Timberline Tours does horseback rides right. The horses are well cared for (no saddle sores, groomed before and after rides, allowed rest days, well-fed, etc.). We selected the five-hour, Plain of Six Glaciers ride. Our guide, Tara, was friendly, fun and knowledgeable of the geology, plants and animals in the area. She took photos of us in beautiful places using... More

This 3.5 hour trip gets you up high enough to enjoy the view from Little Bee Hive while still including time at the Lake Agnes teahouse. Our guide was a bit chatty but very friendly as it was just one couple. After many days of rain, the trail was quite muddy for the first mile or so. The trail was... More

This family-run business, which is a short walk from the Lake Louise parking lot, has about 130 horses (and 9 dogs). The owner and staff seem to know the personality of each horse very well. We did the 2-hour ride, which is not a loop around Lake Louise but rather a slow leisurely ride along one side of the lake... More

I have ridden horses in many locations all over the world and this has to be the most beautiful ride that I have ever been on. We did the 3.5 hour tour to Lake Agnes and the teahouse there and it was really wonderful. The guide was very informative and professional and there were only 3 of us on the... More

My cousin and I did the 3.5 hour tour to Lake Louise and Lake Agnes and it was amazing! Beautiful scenic views and be horses were lovely. I do have a fear of heights and at times the trail is narrow and rocky. But the horses know exactly what they're doing and I felt very safe! I would definitely go... More
