Escape your everyday life for a pure Canadian backcountry wilderness experience and adventure.
Backcountry trail rides and vacations with Bull River Adventures (formerly Total Outdoor Adventures) explore some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world, featuring rivers, forest, alpine meadows, and mountain passes. Travelling over rugged terrain, you will be amazed at the sure-footedness of our mountain horses that have all been specifically chosen for this type of excursion.
Bull River Adventures specialises in half-day, full-day and multi-day horseback riding tours. All trips are based out of the main lodge located beside the Bull River. Due to the nature of the rugged terrain, trips are at a walking pace, giving the best opportunity to take in the spectacular scenery and hopefully spot some wildlife!
