Northern British Columbia provides some of the most remote and spectacular horseback riding country in the world.

Ride from backcountry cabin to cabin, passing some of the most intense, magnificent scenery you will ever see.

While horseback riding is the norm, some outfitters can supply llamas; these powerful, hardy animals are right at home on rugged wilderness trails.

Be sure to take a guide into these backcountry areas, as there are no designated trails. For some cowboy action, head to the Kispiox Valley Rodeo, which draws spectators and performers from across the country in June. Events include steer wrestling, calf roping, bull riding, ladies barrel racing and goat tying.
