CALGARY - The 92-year-old non-profit group Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies will offer guided horseback adventures in Waterton Lakes National Park this summer.

It's the first time the Calgary-based club, which promotes conservation, has run trips in the park, a UNESCO world heritage site in Alberta's southwest corner.

The six-day back-country experiences — priced at $2,775 per person, which includes membership in the organization — feature teepee and tent accommodations, gourmet four-course meals, hot showers and bus transportation from Calgary, Trail Riders says.

The group says its luxury getaways are for both novice and seasoned riders.

En route to the park, participants will visit another UNESCO world heritage site, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.

"Environmental awareness has always been a top priority of (Trail Riders), and we have been a leader in reducing back-country impact," the group says on its website.
