2019 HORSEBACK EXPEDITIONS TO THE MUSKWA-KECHIKA
Would you like to travel with saddlehorse and packtrain through a thriving, spectacular, and roadless wilderness? Now you can experience the pristine Northern Rockies just as did the first European explorers who crossed the North American continent.

The 2019 Muskwa-Kechika Expedition will be hosted by Wayne Sawchuk, a guide, photographer and conservationist who has been leading horseback expeditions into the Muskwa-Kechika since 1985. Through his work with industry, wilderness organizations, and public planning processes, Wayne has been instrumental in creating a wilderness management area that serves as a model for protecting wild places worldwide.

Muskwa-Kechika Adventures specializes in unique, experiential and full-on wilderness horseback experiences. This is the real deal! Do not expect a typical "tourist" trip. Instead, you will become an expedition member. Participants share in all camp and trail activities such as saddling, fire-lighting, cooking, and horse wrangling. Horse travel in the wilderness is rigorous, and folks must be able to hike up and down steep trails, mount and dismount repeatedly, and assist with camp and horse activities according to their abilities. Experience with horses is useful, but not necessary. Fitness, however, is mandatory.
